This MIB module defines Textual Conventions and
OBJECT-IDENTITIES for use in documents defining
management information base (MIBs) modules for managing
CISCO-GSLB-SYSTEM-MIB, CISCO-GSLB-DNS-MIB and
CISCO-GSLB-HEALTH-MON-MIB (These MIB modules are used
for a Global Server Load Balancing device(GSLB)).
Acronyms and their description:
CRA : Content Routing Agent - software that provides
information to a GSLB device for content
routing decisions and handles content routing
requests from the GSLB device.
D-Proxy : It is a local name server of the client which
has initiated a DNS query for a domain.
VIP : Virtual IP Addresses - they are used by server
load balancing devices to represent content
hosted on one or more servers under their
control. The use of VIPs is to route content
to the proper requesting host without exposing
the device's internal IP address.
Keepalive : A keepalive is an interaction between GSLB
device and another device using a commonly
supported protocol. It is used to periodically
check if a resource is still active.
DNS race : It is a method of resolving the proximity of
the CRAs from the D-Proxy. In this method the
GSLB device sends a request to all the CRAs
directing them to respond to the D-Proxy at
at the same time. The first response received
by the D-proxy is, by default, considered to
be the most proximate.
