[HTTP Connectors Load Balancing Guide]: Session replication doesn't works with Tomcat
Last modified: 2012-11-08 17:10:49 EST
Following text (all about session replication) is valid for EAP and not for EWS. Should be removed.
HTTP session replication is used to replicate the state associated with web client sessions to other nodes in a cluster. If one node becomes unavailable, another node in the cluster takes the load of the disabled node. Two distinct functions must be performed:
Session state replication
Load-balancing HTTP Requests
Sessions state replication is handled by JBoss at the application level.
Load balancing, however, requires an external load balancer. A cost effective way of managing load-balancing is to set up a software load balancer using Apache httpd and mod_jk.
The overview no longer contains these paragraphs. This bug will be set to ON_QA when the results appear on the stage.
This bug is set to CLOSED CURRENT RELEASE to indicate that this fix is now released and available at access.redhat.com.
