Would be interested to know if anyone has made any load tests on their applications, and how they compare to mine.

I am Running Apache v2.2 serving Tomcat1 and Tomcat2 (v5.5.15) in a loadbalancing configuration with mod_jk

Using Jmeter to simulate 50 users making various page accesses in my application.

I compared the idential test on the Tomcat1 & Tomcat2 config and again on a single native Tomcat:8080 config.

The Native Tomcat config is around 50-60% faster that the loadbalanced.

It's a hell of a trade off !

Regards,

SMc

If not using mod_jk maybe using reverse proxy?
