Traffic steering

  1 min read

Traffic steering policies decide how a load balancer routes traffic to attached and healthy pools.

  • Standard: Standard steering policies include Off - Failover and Random.
  • Geo: Geo Steering directs traffic to pools tied to specific countries, regions, or — for Enterprise customers only — data centers.
  • Dynamic: Dynamic Steering uses health check data to identify the fastest pool for a given Cloudflare Region or data center.
  • Proximity: Proximity Steering routes visitors or internal services to the closest physical data center.
