    broadcast packet flooding the network

    Yiu Wing Tsang Newbie

      we are using jboss-4.2.0.GA , internal gigabit network

      usually we have deployed 3 jboss, all in a cluster, and it works perfectly

      and recently, we have deployed more jboss, but in a different cluster (i.e. using a different cluster name), and find that the broadcast packets in the network happen to flood the network seriously

      e.g.
      before: each machine have 1.X broadcast packet per second
      after: occasionally each machine have several thousand packets per second

      i am still checking the real cause, but want to confirm if jboss will contribute "broadcast" packets? as i just assume that it just multicast packets

      also, can anyone share that how many jboss can be deployed in a cluster in production environment without problem?
