Loadbalancer between spark connector and couchbase

Hi, I know that if the application server is connecting to the Couchbase cluster, we do not need a load balancer in between. Is this same case if spark connector is connecting with Couchbase. Is my understanding correct that we will not need a load balancer in that case as well.

Hi Rajib,

You are correct. Generally speaking, putting a load balancer in front of a Couchbase cluster is not recommended.


Thanks David, I am assuming the same is true for spark connector also. I briefly saw that it uses a scala based SDK. I hope that SDK also has the load balancing logic and we do not need to bring in additional load balancer
