I'm running JBoss 4.2.2GA under w2k3. There are 4 physical servers (in dev) running multiple jboss instances. I have 5 clusters or apps (4 nodes per cluster) running across the servers. Each one is bound to its own ip address and each ip address is loaded into the server. When preforming a jmx/rmi query it can take a couple of minutes to return the results (a jsp page displaying tables). This only happens when querying any of the instances that are hosted on the same physical server. For example I have 5 apps, each are clustered running in dev and prod. One of those apps is used to check vital stats on the other jboss instances (uptime, memory, connections, etc). So if i connect to the app in dev and it runs the queries on the other jboss instances in dev it can take a couple of minutes to load, but if I run the queries from dev to prod they return much quicker. Any ideas as to why, the logs show no errors or anything. Thanks in advanced!
