Does the load balancer in App platform support gRPC load balancing?

I have deployed a gRPC component in my App and it is available internally. Does it support load balancing if I scale it?

Hello @mohamedsaleemvh

I believe this question was asked before in our community which you can check here:

App Platform only supports HTTP traffic so running a gRPC service that’s publicly available will not work.

It is possible to run a gRPC service internally that is accessible by components within your app using internal service ports.

Hope that this helps!
