Hello, I would like offer high availability and have a load balancer control traffic to my application nodes/droplets. I understand that I can use a droplet as a dedicated load balancer. Is there a best practice or rule of thumb when selecting ram and processor size of a load balancer relative to the amount of users or size of the application nodes themselves? For instance, should the specs of the lb be larger or smaller than the application nodes? Any suggestions?
