Redirect search robots onto a dedicated cluster machine when using apache

0 votes

We have a small cluster of machines serving a wiki website. Search engine robots are allowed in to index the website and these create a lot of traffic that can affect the service. I would like to redirect all http requests from these robots to one of the machines in the cluster.

Any ideas for how to do this ?

You should be able to use a rewrite rule that redirects to another server / port / worker.

I am new to apache, so forgive me if this is a beginner questions.

I am trying to redirect request to apache based on the IP address. Depending on where the request originates from, the request will either have a external or internal IP address. External will be redirected to the external site, internal will be redirected to the internal site.

Request to will be evaluated based on the IP address. Then redirected to either or . I am able to accomplish this with the following.

 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^ 
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [R=301,L] 
 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^ 
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [R=301,L] 

The problem I am running into is that this is in a loop. Every request will be evaluated and redirected. If possible, I need a way to redirect once, then let other request ( or )not be evaluated and then redirected

when searching a user mod_ldap returns only parent node attributes. Is there any setting so that search will return parent node attributes as well.

LDAP URS is as follows:
LdapUrl=ldap://,dc=mtnl,dc=com?uid,userPassword,cn,sn [1]?

Here I could get back only uid,userPassword. cn and sn were blank, which are attributes of child nodes.

The Barracuda load balancer has feature which enables it to recover a broken web connection. Let me explain the scenario; suppose that there exist two web servers behind the Barracuda load balancer and the user is downloading a file from one of the back-end web servers. Now, suppose that the active web server goes down, the Barracuda load balancer is capable of continuing the download from where it was broken using the other web server. Is it possible to achieve such a behaviour using mod_proxy_balancer? Are there exist any open source alternatives which can provide the same capability? If not, is anybody aware of any roadmap to achieve the same functionality using open source tools? Considering mod_proxy_balancer, what are the required steps to follow in order to add such a functionality?
