Subject Re: network of broker performance question
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2008 18:15:11 GMT

Hi St├ęphane,

I'll be running some tests this week-end or next week. My setup will be 2
brokers communicating accross the network. On one side I'll be retrieving
from a database and the other I'll be storing. I'll be testing several
scenarios like network communication problems, heavy messages, etc... I'll
let you know how it goes.

I'm still very new to activeMQ (just started looking into it last week). I
can`t say if there's any load balancing features between several brokers.

Meanwhile check out this thread:
