    The performance of JBoss clustering puzzled me

    Ddpie Newbie

      Hi guys:

      I?m new to JBoss clustering and apache.

      Has anyone met problem like this? I use JBoss cluster to test my JSPs,but its performance was not so great,and even badly than the performace without clustering. Here is my environment:

      I have three servers:

      The first one (ip:
      Windows XP sp2
      512M memory
      JBoss 4.04GA

      The second one (ip:
      Windows XP sp2
      256M memory
      JBoss 4.04GA

      The last one (ip:
      Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition
      1G memory
      Apache 2.0.59

      The compiled in modules of the Apache is:

      httpd.config of apache on

      ServerRoot "C:\Program Files\CSS\Apache2"
      PidFile logs/httpd.pid
      Timeout 300

      The workers.properties of apache on is:
      #JBoss on
      #JBoss on

      A part of the configration in server.xml in tomcat of JBoss( is :
      <Connector port="8080" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
       maxThreads="250" strategy="ms" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
       enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
       connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true"/>
      <Connector port="8009" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
       emptySessionPath="true" enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443"
       scheme="https" protocol="AJP/1.3"/>
      <Connector port="8443" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
       maxThreads="100" strategy="ms" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
       scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false"
       keystorePass="12345678" sslProtocol = "TLS" />
      <Engine name="jboss.web" defaultHost="localhost" jvmRoute="node26">

      I used LoadRunner to record the script of visiting the JSPs in JBoss,and used JProfiler to monitor the JBoss on

      I tested three times(50 virtual users visit the JSPs parallely 20 minutes.The CPU time involves the time of starting the JBoss service):
      Here is the table of the tests results:


      If cann't displayed,see http://picasaweb.google.com/ddpie.flea/JBoss/photo#5063968585782417570.

      I doubt apache was the bottleneck,but I don?t know where the problem is with my configration of apache.

      Does anyone know?

      Thanks in advance.^o^
