Property Value

A 32-bit integer that specifies the load factor of the server.


This property is read/write. Its default value is 100, and it must be equal to or greater than 1.

When the Cache Array Routing Protocol (CARP) is enabled in an array with multiple Forefront TMG computers, the load factor assigned to each array member is a relative number that determines the distribution of client Web requests and cached objects among the array members by the CARP algorithm. For more information, see Cache Array Routing Protocol.

CARP is enabled for Web requests coming from a particular network when the ResolveInArray property of the network's listener is set to True (VARIANT_TRUE in C++). However, no objects are cached on any server in the array unless the CacheLimitInMegs property of at least one cache drive of at least one server belonging to the array is set to a nonzero value.


Client Requires Windows Vista or Windows XP.
Server Requires Windows Server 2008.
Version Requires Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG).

Declared in Msfpccom.idl.
