    multicast for JBoss AS 7.1.1 in virtualized/cloud environment


      I'm trying to update my infrastructure of JBoss cluster.

      In 4.3 we used to bind the multicast stream to a dedicated nic as this was the advise we received at the time.

      Now we are going to deploy JBoss 7.1.1 on a cloud environment (a cloudstack env completely under our control).

      My questions are:

      1) is multicast needed/advisable?

      2) does it make sense to create a virtual nic and to bind the multicast stream to it (it should go on a separate VLAN of the cloudstack's tenant)


      Any architectural advices on this subject?

      We plan to use puppet for automate configuration, but any good practice is appreciated.
