Description Bong Samson 2013-07-09 21:59:34 UTC
This is a request for new feature for mod_proxy/mod_proxy_balancer.

Can you please take a look at providing the capability for mod_proxy_balancer to identify which (group of) nodes to failover to. As an example, if cluster A has node 1 and 2 replicated together, and cluster B has nodes 3 and 4.
If node 1 fails it has to failover to only node 2 since the session objects are replicated on that node.  Accordingly, node 3 will have node 4 as failover. If however, node 1 and 2 are both down, then failover to either node 3 or 4. This is similar to the "domain cluster" capability in mod_jk.

This is to address the requirement of deploying several smaller cluster groups rather than one large cluster for performance considerations.   

Will also appreciate if it can be back-ported to version 2.2.x
