Hi Guys I know there's a lot of information on this; But i would dearly appreciate if someone threw light on these issues: Tomcats can be clustered for load-balancing and apache http server can do it. The documents say so: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/balancer-howto.html http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/cluster-howto.html so far so good: But in balancer-howto.html: Apache 2 configuration the autors mention: First we must create a rewrite map (for mod_rewrite) (balancing.conf): LB1 tomcat1.foo.com:8080 LB2 tomcat2.foo.com:8080 LB3 tomcat3.foo.com:8888 ALL tomcat1.foo.com:8080|tomcat2.foo.com:8080|tomcat3.foo.com:8888 Where can I find this balancing.conf? Has anybody tried these things TIA Ravi
The first thing ( I think ) to be absolutely clear on is:
are you using Tomcat stand-alone or Apache, connected to Tomcat, through a connector?
That will mostly dictate how you proceed to load-balance and cluster your tomcat install.

Sorry about not backing to you. Yes I am trying to use apache 2.0 as load balancer. I have 2 instances of tomcat listening on ports 11009 and ports 12009 repsectively. I have connected them with apache usinhg mod_jk2
