Okta recommends that whenever possible load balancers and Access Gateway as a load balancer be implemented.
See About Access Gateway load balancing.

  1. Expand the Protected Web Resources tab.
  2. In Protected Web Resource tab enable load balancing.
    The Protected Web Resource showing load balancing enabled for this web resource.
    The Protected Web Resource tab will then expand to include a table of hostnames and weights representing the target load balancing instances, initially empty.
  3. Select a URL scheme. All added protected web resources will inherit this scheme. HTTP and HTTPS schemes are supported.
  4. [Optional] Enable and specify Host Header value.
  5. Repeat as required:
    1. Click Add protected web resource.
      A new empty row will be added to the table.
    2. Enter a fully qualified hostname:port combination.
      For example https://backendserver1.atko.com:7001.
    3. Enter a weight between 1 and 100. Enter 0 to specify a disabled host.
      Important Note

      Weights represent the percentage of requests that will be routed to this host.
      For example, two hosts of weights 2:1 would result in requests being routed ~66% to the host weighted 2 and ~33% to the host weighted 1.

    4. Click Okay to add the new host, or Cancel to cancel.
      Click edit () to modify an existing host.
      Click delete() to delete an existing host.
  6. Optional Configure health checks:
    Health checks are optional and use GET operations to confirm back and resources are functional.
    Resources deemed unhealthy are not routed new requests.
