Hello, I have two Tomcat servers running the same java application and I am trying to set-up a proxy to load balance the incoming users using a round robin scheme.
Apart from that, I also want the proxy to check if a server is down _before_ redirecting a request there (and if it's dead, it should redirect it to someone else who is still alive). Is this possible using mod_proxy from Apache 2.x? If so, do you know of any tutorials on these two subjects? Thank you very much! Smile

Did you read http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_proxy_balancer.html ?

Maybe it fits your needs.
