Re: ACE Module support loadbalance rmi, ajp, jms, etc?

Hi Alvaro,

There are no specific handlers in ACE for the protocols listed. RMI over IIOP and majority of CORBA implementations are TCP socket based and typically require persistent (Sticky) assignments to real servers if load-balanced, so generic ACE loadbalancing predictors, probes and sticky features should suffice. If you need to do a deeper inspection you can use the Generic Protocol Parsing, and custom Probe (TCL) capabilities to track content of interest. Same applies for JMS and AJP, although there are different transports for these prototocls (i.e. JMS over HTTP) which may change configuration requirements.

In general, since these protocols are used for stateful application integration, long running transactions, messaging, and data access...and they are very sensitive to object namespace/target references you should detail individual use case requirements and applicability of external application delivery controller based load balancing (i.e. using ACE).

Let me know if this helps or if you need more detail. Thanks. -George

Hi George,

I'm also facing hte same issue. One of my application is also using JMS services and while using VIP its not responding but when we try ti hit server directly its working. I have set it for sticky and generic but still no luck. Rest is JMS over HTTP forthat I am not sure how to achive it. It will great help if you can assist me. Thanks!  Mahendra
