I do have a web application which is using Apache and Tomcat. Apache is using SSL and forwards requests via mod_jk to Tomcat.
For performance reasons now I do want to have more then one Tomcat running behind one Apache.
I know that I can use load balancing directives in the worker settings to distribute requests to serveral Tomcats, but I'm wondering if this will work with SSL and sticky sessions.
Also I could have one single Apache as load balancer in front of 2 or 3 Apache/Tomcat instances. In this case the first Apache which is the load balancer would distribute requests to the backend Apache/Tomcat instances. Will this work with SSL and sticky sessions?
Does anyone have some hints or comments on this?
Any help/hint is appreciated!
Thank you very much, Peter
