I’m shifting our NTP service from using core switches/routers to 4 dedicated hosts running chrony. I figured that it might be worth while giving back to the community and joining up to the NTP pool.
However I’m thinking of setting up a single virtual IP that load balances across the four stratum 2 hosts. Would it cause issues if I submit the load balanced vip to the pool?
The load balancing algorithm would the something like ‘least packets’ and I probably would leave persistence off - this will mean each request will be answered by a different host. Alternatively I could ‘sticky’ it to a single host unless it goes down - but that doesn’t help with load distribution.
Thanks in advance.
