  Clustering and Load Balancing in Tomcat 5, Part 2
Subject:   Load Balacer fail-over

I enjoyed the articles on Tomcat clustering/load balancing as I'm new to Tomcat and have a need to define an architecture to support several web applications running on Tomcat.


My question relates to the load balancer node: Is there a way to define a "primary" load balancer and a "secondary" load balancer. The idea being that only the "primary" load balancer would truley do load balancing and the "secondary" load balancer is only there in case the primary node were to fail?


Any thoughts on this?


Thanks,
