Round-Robin Dispatch Mode

Round-Robin Dispatch Mode

In round-robin dispatch mode, the Load Balancer dispatches tasks to nodes in a round-robin fashion. The Load Balancer checks the Maximum Processes resource provision threshold on the first available node. It dispatches the task to this node if dispatching the task does not cause this threshold to be exceeded. If dispatching the task causes this threshold to be exceeded, the Load Balancer evaluates the next node. It continues to evaluate nodes until it finds a node that can accept the task.
The Load Balancer dispatches tasks for execution in the order the Workflow Manager or scheduler submits them. The Load Balancer does not bypass any task in the dispatch queue. Therefore, if a resource-intensive task is first in the dispatch queue, all other tasks with the same service level must wait in the queue until the Load Balancer dispatches the resource-intensive task.
