Subject Re: When is Tomcat 5 Release version scheduled to come out?
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2003 20:41:49 GMT

I am a bit deceived about Tomcat (5) clustering with session 
replication, and our company is considering (against) its (upcoming) 
usage on production systems for high-load environments.

Expectancies were that it would increase reliability AND performance. 
Preliminary home-made tests are showing increased reliability(*) but NOT 
substantially increased performance (somewhere around 80%-120% depending 
on the difficulty of generating the pages). Maybe it's application-specific.

Any comments, opinions, facts, or advice, as well as any related 
experiences (good or bad) will be greatly appreciated.

Personally, I would love to see it in production, but I will only push 
it forward if I am convinced of its advantages. At the moment, I need 
more evidence before making a decision.

Thank you very much.

Antonio Fiol
