    Load Balancer is Single Point of Failure?

    burakbayramli Newbie

      Hi,

      We have set up a JBoss cluster for our Servlets. We also read the literature on load balancing that recommends using "one" Apache (through mod_jk2) that distributes load among JBoss servers.

      But this turns Apache into a single point of failure.

      We would like to have two Apache servers. Both these guys will know about "both" JBoss servers.

      Will this work? Do we need to put a DNS round robin in front of two Apache servers? How will session affinity work in this setup?

      Thanks,
