Application Request Routing (ARR) is a feature in IIS Manager that helps to maximize available server resources. The proxy-based routing module makes dynamic decisions for routing Web traffic. It uses information from HTTP headers, server variables, and load balance algorithms to determine how to forward HTTP requests to application servers. ARR uses several modules to help you manage the servers in your server farm. These modules include Caching, Server Affinity, Health Test, Load Balance, Monitoring and Management, Proxy, and Routing Rules.
For more information about ARR and how to use this module in a server farm, see the Define and Configure an Application Request Routing Server Farm walkthrough.
