Subject [jira] [Assigned] (GUACAMOLE-317) Allow for failover-only connections
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2017 22:25:18 GMT


Michael Jumper reassigned GUACAMOLE-317:

    Assignee: Michael Jumper

> Allow for failover-only connections
> -----------------------------------
>                 Key: GUACAMOLE-317
>                 URL:
>             Project: Guacamole
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: guacamole-auth-jdbc
>            Reporter: Michael Jumper
>            Assignee: Michael Jumper
> Particularly in light of recent changes implementing connection failover (GUACAMOLE-267),
it's become clear that balancing group order needs to be predictably (and configurably) deterministic.
> A good portion of that requirement is achieved via GUACAMOLE-102, which allows connections
to be weighted, however:
> Consider the case where a balancing group contains several connections, which are meant
to be used only when other connections are unavailable (a [hot spare|]).
As currently implemented, such a balancing group will always distribute load evenly across
its connections (or at least evenly with respect to weights), including the connections intended
for failover only. Though GUACAMOLE-267 will cause the group to avoid failing connections,
the backup connections will still be used in cases where no connections are failing.
> Somehow, balancing group policy needs to be configurable to the extent that underlying
connections can be dedicated to backup/failover cases.
