Description Alan Conway 2008-12-11 18:18:44 UTC
Description of problem:

Typical cluster configuration uses sepatate subnets for multicast & client traffic. To enforce this, each broker must be individually configured with an appropriate --cluster-url, which is inconvenient.


Allow TCP addresses in the URL to be treated as subnet addresses, construct a URL by matching against addrs for known NICs. E.g. if addr is, then the URL address could be This allows a single config file to work for all brokers on a subnet.

Comment 1 Alan Conway 2009-02-17 14:21:29 UTC
A more flexible solution might be to allow simple wildcards in the cluster URL. The broke can generate a list of all the local interface address and match them to the wildcard addresses.  e.g. tcp:192.168.1.*.

Closing: this was raised internally, there's no customer demand for it.
