Subject ActiveMQ Network of Brokers
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 16:28:11 GMT
I"m trying to understand the concept behind the network of brokers in
ActiveMQ. What I understand from the documentation is that by having a
network or broker we can get load balancing. I would assume that load
balancing would mean that the messages are sent to either one of the brokers
(Master or a Slave) depending on the processing capability which is internal
to ActiveMQ. 

But when I use a shared file system, the Master acquired the lock and the
Slave waits indefinitely to acquire the lock. The Slave does not also start
its transport connectors. So with this being the case, how could a network
of brokers offer load balancing?

When the Slave does not even have its transport connectors started, how
could the Master load balance the messages that it gets? I somehow do not
understand the idea behind it.
