• mod_manager : This module reads the information from AS 7 and updates the
shared memory information in conjunction with mod_slotmem
• mod_proxy_cluster : This module contains the balancer for mod_proxy
• mod_advertise : This is an additional module that allows HTTP to advertise
via multicast packets—the IP and port—where the mod_cluster module is
The next part of the configuration that we need to add is the core load balancing configur-
Deny from all
Allow from 192.168.10.
Basically, you have to replace the 192.168.10.1 IP address with the one that your
Apache web server listens for requests and the port value of 8888 with the one you want
to use to communicate with WildFly.
As it is, the Apache virtual host allows you to have incoming requests from the subnet-
work 192.168.10 .
The KeepAliveTimeout directive allows you to reuse the same connection within 60
seconds. The number of requests per connection is unlimited since we are setting
MaxKeepAliveRequests to 0 . The ManagerBalancerName directive provides
the balancer name for your cluster (defaults to mycluster ).
What's most important for us is the ServerAdvertise directive that is set to On and
uses the advertise mechanism to tell WildFly whom it should send the cluster information
