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.
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.
