XLB is an HTTP load balancer. It features connection management where requests are parsed and assigned to a persistent connection to the back-end server. This reduces back-end server load by causing fewer forks, less memory use, and lower CPU consumption. It can decode SSL requests, which is useful if you have an SSL accelerator board. Scripting allows requests to be routed to specific pools or headers modified based on the URL, filename, source IP, and other fields. A fast in-memory cache is included .
