The Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn package provides system load balancing between multiple servers running Wowza server software. Each edge server is configured to use the ServerListenerLoadBalancerSender ServerListener class. We'll call these servers the "edge" servers. Edge servers will periodically (about every 2.5 seconds) send load and status information over UDP to a single (or multiple) Wowza servers running the ServerListenerLoadBalancerListener ServerListener. We'll call this server the "load balancer." The load balancer will keep track of the load and availability of each edge server with which it's communicating. See the README.html file in the package for detailed instructions.
The load is a connection count and should be equal on all applications within the load balancing pool. If you're load balancer is sending connections to the edges and origin, the load for the server running the origin and edge will have double the connections other servers will have as it's using 2 applications within the load balancing pool.
To investigate this issue further I believe we will need to see the configuration of the servers within the load balancing pool. Please open a ticket by emailing

Please do make sure you provide logs which show Wowza server starting.
