Dear all,

What is the function of Web Adaptor ? Is it just to redirect request ?

Suppose I have 3 arcgis server machines configured as 1 cluster. Do I need Web Adaptor ? Isnt the work load between servers already spread out automatically since I have all of them in 1 cluster ?

What I mean is... say there is a request to a map service. The request can go straight away to the arcgis server address (I disregard the security, this is just a mere load balance test) instead of going to Web Adaptor first... The load balancing will be automatic. Right ?

Correct me if my understanding is wrong
