Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-816) new transport for load balancing client requests across many brokers
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 16:28:51 GMT

Hiram Chirino commented on AMQ-816:

Sounds similar to the fanout transport we currently have.  Except that in the fanout transport
it's backwards.
We broadcast the publish to multiple brokers and only consume from 1.

> Rather than creating store and forward networks, it might be nice to have a kind of composite
transport where...
> * consumers are created on each broker found/discovered. This allows messages to be sent
to any broker and consumed by any consumer
> * producers could dynmically choose which broker to send a message to (or could just
pick one broker per session/producer)
> this allows for a load balancing layer at the client side which avoids the need for store/forward
networks (which results in more network traffic and often increases load on the brokers).
> So it basically pushes load back to the clients. The downside of this appoach is that
the clients have more connections to brokers - but given the linear scalability of this, it
sounds a great idea to me at least :)
