Load balancer question

November 11, 2014 11:44AM
Hi everyone,
I am starting to work with nginx to use it as a load balancer for a web service. Basically, what I am try to configure is something like:

$ cat nginx.conf

http {

upstream load_balancer {
server localhost:8080/Instance1;
server localhost:8080/Instance2;
server localhost:8080/Instance3;

server {
listen 81;
location / {
proxy_pass http://load_balancer;

I would like nginx to manage the requests among the three instances above, depending on the load. Is it correctly defined? How can I test that my request are properly managed by nginx?
Thanks in advance,
