This is the component you can see here:
The first image shows traffic arriving via Radius and Diameter load
balancers. This is not a generic load balancer but part of distributed
Radiator solution, be it NFV, or something that uses Radiator with a
load balancer to fan out traffic to Radiator instances.
Radiator and its load balancer, which is not a Radiator instance but a
specific software that does just load balancing, can communicate with
each other and share information. This information is about worker
instance health, automatic registration with scale in/out, hints about
balancing, for example, to keep EAP streams together.
What's currently in Radiator is the first release of Radiator part. The
load balancer works currently with NFV only, but will work making it
available as a non-NFV package too.
