Subject AW: Preferred configuration with Hardware Loadbalancer
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2011 10:43:48 GMT
Hello,
I mean a frontend Apache httpd and backend Tomcat server. 
Loadbalancing would be done by a hardware load balancer fronted to the
Apache Webserver, so we should not balance the request two times. It should
be only a Failovercluster.



Best regards
Alexander

What do you mean by Apache Webserver? Do you mean Apache Tomcat or Apache
httpd?

 And do you want Failover (active-passive) or Loadbalancing (active-active)?

 Ronald.
