Popular websites such as Google and Facebook are accessed by an extremely large clients and providing such clients only with a single web server is absolutely insufficient. To support service availability, two or more servers are required. This, however, needs a load balancing system. A load balancing server receives web traffic and distributes the requests to such multiple servers. Load balancing can be implemented with special hardware, software or a combination of both. The purpose of this research is to develop a load balancing system with HAProxy as a software-based load balancer and Heartbeat as failover software. The research also provides comparisons of the performance of several balancing algorithms on the system. The results show that without a load balancer, the load cannot equally be distributed. The system average failover time when an active server down is 10ms. The Leastconn algorithm, in general, outperformed the Round-Robin and Source algorithms in terms of connection rate, response time, throughput, and failed connection.
