IP Groups

IP Group is the term used for grouping of multiple servers together, as a single entity. To view a list of your discovered IP groups, click on Inventory > IP Groups

Faddom supports three types of IP groups.

IP Group with virtual IP

In this case, there is a single virtual IP address that is used by clients to access all IP group
members. This type of IP group is most commonly defined in a Load Balancer. Faddom
extracts the configuration of load balancers and automatically defines IP groups that
are defined there.

IP Group without a virtual IP

This is usually either a load-balancing IP group or an active/passive cluster. In this type of
IP group, there is no single front-end virtual server, but rather a group of servers, each
accessed separately by the clients.

Server with multiple network interfaces

This is actually a single server that has multiple network interfaces with separate IP
addresses. This server should be treated as a single entity and the IP addresses of the
network interfaces should be specified. Faddom automatically identifies and defines multiple
network interfaces for VMware and for AWS/EC2 environments.
