Implementing load balancing with ws-routing/ws-referral - ASP.NET Web Services

Hi, We're trying to implement load balancing using these technologies. I've found lots and lots of articles by googling claiming you can do it, but I cannot find any examples of this, even trivial ones. I've been playing around with it for about a week now, and I haven't figured out a good way to go about doing this. What's confusing me is that it seems you can only have one referral for each path, so if I wanted to round-robin between say 3 services, I don't see how I can accomplish that via the referral cache.

    Default Implementing load balancing with ws-routing/ws-referral

    Hi,

    We're trying to implement load balancing using these technologies. I've found lots and lots of articles by googling claiming you can do it, but I cannot find any examples of this, even trivial ones. I've been playing around with it for about a week now, and I haven't figured out a good way to go about doing this.

    What's confusing me is that it seems you can only have one referral for each path, so if I wanted to round-robin between say 3 services, I don't see how I can accomplish that via the referral cache.

    I wrote something fairly crude that did a round robin by dynamically inserting a via command to one of 3 services URIs I read from the web.config file, but I really don't think that's the proper way to go about doing this. It also wouldn't address how a server dynamically tells the router that it's available or not available. Is there any support for a server to talk to the router directly?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Can anyone from Microsoft answer this one? All MS doentation says this is possible, but there are no examples.
