Ok, so basically i would like to know how to cluster servers. Now before anyone recommends me the plugin that is official in Openfire and uses Oracle Coherence or the other “open-clustering” plugin, i’ll say that i have tried them out and they are not working for me (i am using Openfire 3.7.0).
Basically i would like to achive a goal if one machine drops offline, then another machine can still keep going and users in the server won’t notice the difference. I understand that there is a load balancer needed and most likely a separate database, but could it also be possible to have the same database on each of the cluster servers and the databases would be kept in sync? If thats possible, how to do that?
But first of all i guess a working clustering plugin is needed.
If any of you has another idea about how to achive a goal on how to avoid downtime by having multiple Openfire servers with the same databases etc, then please do tell.
Thanks in advance.
