Subject Re: High Availability and Load Balancing
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2007 20:38:27 GMT

Something like 860 KB/sec of text encapsulated into JMS messages of about 150
bytes each one, coming from 42 machines. The problem is that we need to do
some parsing of the messages on the machine, and that the number of clients
could potentially grow. That's why we need some brokers to be Master.

The only way to provide HA and Load Balancing is to increase the number of
server in pairs (master/slave)?
