    JBoss 3.0.6 Cluster Config with TCP

    Jeff Macomber Newbie

      Hi All,

      I currently have a setup of clustering with JBoss 3.0.4 which works but am attempting to update to JBoss 3.0.6 for the clustering fixes that are included. I am unable to use UDP multicast in the network I am working with though so need the TCP connection information instead.

      I do own the documentation but the latest that has been released is the 3.0.5 and it appears things have changed since then. Specifically the cluster-service.xml has changed to have the PartitionConfig element now with the xml based stack config.

      I made an attempt at writing out what I figured the XML would look like for the TCP based stack but it is not finding the other members. Could someone look at the XML here and tell me what I am doing wrong?

      <....Snippet...>
      <TCP start_port="7800" />
      <TCPPING initial_hosts="AWEB1[7800]" port_range="5" timeout="3000"
      num_initial_members="3" up_thread="true" down_thread="true"/>
      <VERIFY_SUSPECT timeout="1500"
      up_thread="false" down_thread="false" />
      <pbcast.STABLE desired_avg_gossip="20000"
      up_thread="false" down_thread="false" />
      <pbcast.NAKACK gc_lag="100" retransmit_timeout="3000"
      up_thread="true" down_thread="true" />
      <pbcast.GMS join_timeout="5000" join_retry_timeout="2000"
      shun="false" print_local_addr="false" down_thread="true" up_thread="true" />
      <...End Snippet>

          I assume you mean JavaGroups 3.0.4, not JBoss, because there is no JBoss 3.0.4 version.

          1. On which machines are you running the nodes ? They need to be included in the TCPPING.initial_hosts list.

          2. I sugest you use tcp.xml (shipped with the JavaGroups distribution) and modify it to conform to the cluster-service.xml format. Aso change the host names/ports.

          3. Turn on full tracing to see what's going on.

            Its works for me with this config. I got two instances running on the same box. The other instance has TCP start port as 8800 and localhost[7800] in the initial hosts.



            <TCP start_port="7800"/>
            <TCPPING initial_hosts="localhost[8800]" port_range="5" timeout="3000"
            num_initial_members="3" up_thread="true" down_thread="true"/>
            <VERIFY_SUSPECT timeout="1500" up_thread="false" down_thread="false" />
            <pbcast.STABLE desired_avg_gossip="20000" up_thread="false" down_thread="false" />
            <pbcast.NAKACK gc_lag="100" retransmit_timeout="3000" up_thread="true" down_thread="true" />
            <pbcast.GMS join_timeout="5000" join_retry_timeout="2000" shun="false" print_local_addr="false" down_thread="true" up_thread="true" />



            Hope it helps

              Sorry, I'm wrong. Version 3.0.4 does exist (I got confused by the same JavaGroups version).

                Hi Bill Gates, can you help me?
                I fail to use UDP for my session replication. Can you give me some example of snipset of cluster-service.xml if I want to create communication for 3 servers?
                Thanks advance
