Earlier I asked on forums https://developer.jboss.org/message/946476#946476
on our wf8.2 server the web-app have two http endpoints: on port 8080 to regular http requests; and on port 37304 to "special" user requests in protected area.
we want use mod_cluster as load-balancer that balances user requests on both ports. For example(see the pic), lets requests on balancer`s port 7801 will be balance between node1 and node2 on port 8080, and requests on balancer`s port 7802 will be balance on port 37304.
In modcluster-subsystem configuration in standalone.xml we can set only one connector for mod-cluster config. And cannot set more than one mod-cluster-config section:
alternatively, we can use mod_cluster + mod_proxy_balancer or mod_cluster + mod_jk so that mod_cluster balances on 8080 and other tech(mod_proxy_balancer or mod_jk) balances on other port 37304.
But this decision obviously not good: reverse loopback from servers(mgmt info with loadfactor of server) to balancer will manage balancing only for one port, not for both.
Seems that mod_cluster absolutely not supports more than one connector balancing:
is this true?
what is the best way to solve our problem?
During more than 100 views no one answer :'(
Now we have made a decision to use mod_proxy_balancer, but if it possible to refine mod_cluster subsystem, this will be greate. When it happens, we will jump to mod_cluster again
