Subject RE: [users@httpd] how to failover apache (running with mod_jk and tomcat)...UPDATE
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 20:42:20 GMT
You need to do some other sort of load-balancing. One possibility is DNS
failover wherein you use multiple IPs for one name.

We use a Cisco Load-Balancer in front of Apache to do the load-balancing for
us. Much better scalability, performance, and, well, load-balancing.

You could also use a proxy Apache in front of the other Apache's which pass
on the requests to the Apache(s) which is running. Of course, you have a
single-point-of-failure there.

HTH,

Ben Ricker

Hi,

What I meant was I've got the mod_jk
loadbalancing/failover working between two servers.
But for that to work apache has to be running on both
servers.  If apache is not running on server A then
the mod_jk piece will never come into the picture and
all requests to server A will not be forwarded to
server B.  What I am interested in doing is to
redirect incoming requests to server A to server B
incase apache is down on server A.
