Hey
Load balancing is perfect.Same number of requests are distributed among
number of tomcats.

Only thing what may possible some requests in queue like why only 500
requests proccessed.

tool is able to hit concurrent requests,LB is disrtibuting among each tomcat
as well.

worker.balancer.sticky_session=1

so indivdual requests is completly proccessed by one tomcat.tool taking care
of sessions.this is fine



i willl surly back you with following tests as well


Thanks a lot !

Regards
Harsimram
