This panel consists of three entry fields:
Name
A descriptive name for the real server.

Note

This name is not the host name for the machine, so make it descriptive and easily identifiable.
Address
The real server's IP address. Since the listening port is already specified for the associated virtual server, do not add a port number.
Weight
An integer value indicating this host's capacity relative to that of other hosts in the pool. The value can be arbitrary, but treat it as a ratio in relation to other real servers in the pool. For more on server weight, see Section 1.3.2, “Server Weight and Scheduling”.

Warning

Remember to click the ACCEPT button after making any changes in this panel. To make sure you do not lose any changes when selecting a new panel.
