Hi, Hot Rod is topology and consistent-hash aware: think of it as having a built-in mod_cluster/balancer.
You just give it one or more known hosts to connect to and it will retrieve the server cluster topology automatically, even when this changes at runtime.
It will automatically failover in case of failed nodes and it can also be configured to failover to a remote site in case the entire primary cluster fails (see Cross-Site Replication).
Hi Tristan thanks for responding. I killed all the processes on domain server and added few entries on carmart example which is running on a remote jboss appserver provided in the infinispan tutorial. It is working as expected adding entries to cache in slave servers in case of master is missing. So in that case I dont need any apache server or f5 loadbalancer for clustering.
