:-) Of course you won't get it down to 1 second - there is some overhead
associated with any type of clustering - 3 seconds would be a great goal. I
would also take a look at where your current performance issues are and try
to get as much as you can out of one Tomcat installation. Maybe you don't
have enough RAM installed, maybe you have other services running - the way
your app is written might be non-optimal, and there are a myriad of things
that can drag your box down. Simply throwing more hardware at it is not
always the best solution (a mixed approach might be what the doctor

Just some general input to set the stage - others will be able to offer your
more detailed insight on what to do...
