<td class="tableMainCell">Traffic Router is a Java Tomcat application that routes clients to the closest available cache on the CDN using both HTTP and DNS. By using consistent hashing it sends requests for the same content to the same cache in a group of caches working together in a location. It takes care of routing clients around hot spots and problems in the CDN by using the information from Traffic Monitor with regards to state of all the caches.
