Load Balancing between TYK API gateway Open SOurce

HI Team,

I need to have two instance of TYK api gateway and I want to distribute the load between them when request comes in.

So for this do we need to add any additional load balancer or TYK already provide mechanism to distribute the incoming traffic between tyk instances?

Hi @saloni512,

You could theoretically use a third tyk gateway in front of your existing two and configure it with round robin load balancing and uptime tests but most people either use a dedicated load balancer or round-robin DNS. It is important to remember to configure a mechanism for detecting that one of the gateways is down so that your service isn’t sending traffic to a down gateway.
