I cannot turn off retry for LB worker.

I'm not sure, but looking at jk_lb_worker.c it seems, that setting it to 0 won't help.

Look at the only place, where 'retries' is being checked

   while (recoverable == JK_TRUE) {
        lb_sub_worker_t *rec;
        if (attempt >= num_of_workers) {
            if (retry >= p->worker->retries) {
                /* Done with retrying */

Should retry be checked only if attempt >= num_of_workers ?

I will mark this as an enhancement request.

The retries attribute of the LB is meant to control, how often the list of members will betried before giving up. So a "1" means, an LB will try each member at most once, a "2" (default) means, there will be at most two rounds of trying each member.

I will clarify the docs and think about whether a complete disabling of retries makes sense and how to implement it.

Bug 62408 has a patch that should enable this to be addressed.
