Re: GSLB configuration: How to apply policy for a particular domain

There are two level of policies available which you can use:- global and host-level policies.


The  global policy and the host-level policies are two independent policies, so each  one is a self-contained policy

Example:

You have  three domains:

www.foo.com

www.xyz.com

www.test.com


The  default global policy has the metric-order containing a set of  metrics:

Health-check

<some  other metrics>

Tie-breaker


By  default, each of the above domains will be associated with the global policy.  Now you want to change the metrics and metric-order only for domain www.test.com- say you  want the metric-order to be geographic followed by tie-breaker. you can either  change the global policy but this will also affect the other two domains or you  can configure a host-level policy with the metric-order geographic tie-breaker  and attach it to www.xyz.com.

So  host-level policies give you added granularity to control metrics, their order  and other parameters at the domain level and will be defined similar to global  policy.


Hope  this helps
