Hi,
Suppose I have two same cloudflared tunnel running on two instances in different countries. How will Cloudflare decide in which instance the traffic should be routed?

Hi there - In this scenario, you would still want to rely on Cloudflare Load Balancing and independent Tunnels to handle traffic routing preferences.

When cloudflared is run, it will establish four connections to Cloudflare’s edge and then will pick one of these four connections which are available. If one connection fails for any reason, it will simply attempt another connection and so on with no preference on which connection is chosen.
