Is there a way to configure ADS such that it load balance consumer requests across different instances of Provider who provides the same service?

We have multiple instances of UPA Provider who provide the same service. On ADS we configure these as two routes but with the same service name.

Then we have multiple consumers who all connect to the same ADS (the consumers do not connect to Providers directly). When the consumers send requests to that service, the requests go to ADS and the ADS would route all requests to just one instance of the Provider.

The question is whether we can make ADS to load balance the requests; for example, the first request sent to the first Provider instance, the second request sent to the second Provider instance, and so on. We don't want the consumers to handle this.

Please help advise.

If you configure the ADS so that each instance of UPA provider is on its own Route, the ADS should Load balance between them. Just make sure they have the same Service ID and Name and different Server IDs.

Thanks for the reply. I've configured as mentioned but the behavior I found was still that the ADS routes to just one instance of the UPA Provider.

You should verify "List of Servers" of the service in adsmon.

From the above picture, there are two servers available for API_ELEKTRON_EPD_RSSL service and the subscribed RICs are distributed between these two servers.
