Subject Re: Tomcat 6 Clustering issue
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 09:48:54 GMT
Hi Darren,
         For our setup tomcat 6 is able to handle failover to healthy node
with proper session replication. I assume you have loaded load balancer
module, updated worker.properties, made cluster changes to server.xml of
tomcat 6. My problem is next step of yours.

         In terms of monitoring you can use jkstatus of apache server. Use
jkstatus Web page to monitor web server requests.For tomcat clustering
visit http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/cluster-howto.html.

Thanks,
Sumedh
