Subject Best protocol & network interface binding
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 08:41:45 GMT

I am working on a project where we have one central J2EE core application
which sends out messages to approx. 500 client computers (using JMS). These
client computers have 4 network interfaces. The basic idea is that certain
services are routed on specific network interfaces. One network interface on
those client machines is a M2M-network (mobile) which is a dedicated channel
for messaging. I currently face two problems:

1) I need to find the "least traffic generating" protocol to send messages.
We pay the mobile connection for every byte we send,  thus we need to keep
the traffic as low as possible. What do you recommend: TCP, UDP

2) Since I have 4 network-cards and interfaces I need to bind the AMQ-client
to a specific interface. The client may only receive messages f.e. on "eth3"
or whatever. The selection of the network interface depends on a
configuration file. When the client sends back a messages, it should also be
routed on this interface. I want to avoid routing with iptables. Is there a

The project is still very flexible and I could switch the strategy very
easily as long as ActiveMQ is involved.

Thanks & Greetings
