Load Balancing - Setting up a CNAME for a Vertica Cluster.

NitheshNithesh - Select Field -


In the this post its mentioned that we need to define CNAME for database connections instead of specific hostname to better distribute queries coming in from application and other reasons.


How and where do we set a CNAME? I googled it, and CNAME is alias for a domain name. Is it the same as a host name. And how do i create a CNAME that will point to all the 5 nodes in my cluster to better balance the write load?
