load balancing

load balancing

noun

The activity by which a forwarder distributes its data stream across multiple receiving indexers in a predefined group. For example, if you define a load-balanced group of three receiving indexers, the forwarder switches from one indexer to another after a specified interval so that each indexer receives a portion of the data.
