    Achieving multiple and different clusters under a single Domain Mode setup in AS 7

    Vijay Bhaskar Chintalapati Newbie

      Please let me clarify what I mean by multiple and different clusters. My cluster setup resembles somewhat to the below architectural diagram.


      You can think of two server groups existing :

      Server Group 1 - Server [1, 3, 5]     with either ha or full-ha, for our example let it be full-ha

      Server Group 2 - Server [2, 4]         with either ha or full-ha, for our example let it be ha


      Now for the purpose of clustering I would like the following happening :

      Server Group 1 mapping to Cluster  1

      Server Group 2 mapping to Cluster 2


      So when I say multiple, I mean Cluster 1 and Cluster 2 and when I say different, I mean that they can modeled after a different (but a variant of ha) profile with different applications loaded.


      On a non-cloud setup where UDP multicast is allowed my observation has been that when I deploy a "distributable" web application, I see that all the server JVMs [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] join a single cluster.


      So the main question is : What can I do to achieve my desired clustering without changing the socket-bindings on either profile used ?


      I understand that one can configure the profile for server groups in such as way each is given a unique multicast address so that we can limit which servers are discovered for clustering by configuring the  parameter: jboss.default.multicast.address
