    After server restart AJP connections start increasing and staying in ESTABLISHED mod_cluster/1.3.2.Final

    Constantin Wolber Newbie



      in our current setup we have an Apache LoadBalancer 2.4 in front of 2 Wildfly 8.2.0 Final Servers (standalone cluster).


      On another server we are using a JBPM Process to trigger certain methods on the wildfly servers. This works perfectly when all servers are cleanly started. We have a test that triggers around 600.000 calls to the loadbalancer.


      lsof -i shows around 60 connections all the time on the loadbalancer


      Whenever we restart one of the wildfly servers  as soon as it gets balanced calls the AJP Connections are neither reused or closed any longer. It goes on until the server has too many open files which crashes the wildfly. The wildfly server that is not restarted does not have the problem ans still runs totally correct.


      Does anybody have an idea on what to check and what to look out for to get the RootCause?


      The infrastructure is running on AWS.


      Those are the configs we currently use:


      Virtual Host Config on Apache:

      <VirtualHost ip:80>

        ServerName ip


        ## Vhost docroot

        DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"


        ## Directories, there should at least be a declaration for /var/www/html


        <Location "/">

          Require ip x.x.x.x



        <Location "/loc1">

          Require all granted



        <Location "/loc2">

          Require all granted



        <Location "/loc3">

          Require all granted



        <Location "/loc4">

          Require all granted



        <Location "/mod-cluster-manager">

          Require ip x.x y.y

          SetHandler mod_cluster-manager



        ## Logging

        ErrorLog "/var/log/apache2/error.log"

        LogLevel info

        ServerSignature Off

        CustomLog "/var/log/apache2/access.log" "%a %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" %D"

        ## Rewrite rules

        RewriteEngine On


        #redirect to real url

        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

        RewriteRule .*[^/]$ /$1/



        ## Custom fragment

        KeepAliveTimeout 60

        MaxKeepAliveRequests 0


        ManagerBalancerName qa

        ServerAdvertise On


        RemoteIPHeader X-Forwarded-For




      The mod cluster config for wildfly:


              <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:modcluster:1.2">

                  <mod-cluster-config advertise-socket="modcluster" proxy-list="lb:80" balancer="qa" connector="ajp">


                          <load-metric type="cpu"/>





      Thx in advance
