Architecture diagram — Connections
The numbers on the connection lines refer to the connection numbers in the table that follows the diagram. The direction of the arrows indicates where the connection is initiated (the source) and where an initiated connection connects to (the destination), from the point of view of Intelligent Workload Distribution as a service in the network.
The connection numbers refer to the numbers on the connection lines in the diagram. The Source, Destination, and Connection Classification columns in the table relate to the direction of the arrows in the Connections diagram above: The source is where the connection is initiated, and the destination is where an initiated connection connects to, from the point of view of Intelligent Workload Distribution as a service in the network. Egress means the Intelligent Workload Distribution service is the source, and Ingress means the Intelligent Workload Distribution service is the destination. Intra-cluster means the connection is between services in the cluster.
