SM 9.41 Horizontal Scaling, Tomcat and Clustering of the webtier

Hi everyone,

anyone has experiment with Tomcat clustering in an environment with multiple HPSM servers and BigIP F5 loadbalancing?

 

We are currently doing horizontal scaling with three backend HP SM servers on Windows and six Tomcat servers for the Webtier portion with a BigIP/F5 load balancer on the front end. and in between the Tomcat servers and the HP SM servers.

However, our six Tomcat servers are independant servers and do not share anything. I would like to evaluate if it is supported and working well to make these six servers to work as a single Tomcat cluster instead.

Anyone mind to share his/her experience with such a setup?

TIA

So, to be sure, without clustering it would look like this:

Browsers > F5-BigIP  >  Six Apache Tomcat's  >  F5-BigIP  >  Three Service Manager Servers horizontally scaled.
