How to openfire load balancing?

Now openfire support clustering, the cluster is just back up all the information node, but did not realize the load balancing. While all the nodes of the domain names are the same, but the visit did not know that when the pressure of the smallest node.

I would like to know has been achieved in the cluster, if realized load balancing?

thanks very much!


Others on this forum are more experienced than I on this, but I believe that you need something upstream of your openfire servers to manage the load balancing aspects so that new clients are connected to least ‘loaded’ hosts. Options for doing this include round robin DNS, some sort of Linux IPVS load balancing frontend, high end CISCO type balancers, and perhaps other options. Openfire clustering won’t get you load balancing tho without some help, IIRC
