Standard steering policies
Standard steering policies include Off - Failover and Random.
These are the only steering policies available to non-Enterprise customers who have not purchased Traffic Steering.
Off - Failover
Failover steering uses the pool order to determine failover priority (the failover order).
If all pools are marked unhealthy, Load Balancing will direct traffic to the fallback pool. The default fallback pool is the last pool listed in the Load Balancing configuration.
If no monitors are attached to the load balancer, it will direct traffic to the primary pool exclusively.
Similar to setting Weights to direct the amount of traffic going to each origin server, customers can also set Weights on pools via the
random_steering object to determine the percentage of traffic sent to each pool.
