Multicast Network Setup

Out of the box clustering support needs IP Multicast. Multicast is a network broadcast protocol. This protocol is used at boot time to discover and join the cluster. It is also used to broadcast messages for the replication and invalidation of distributed caches used by {project_name}.

The clustering subsystem for {project_name} runs on the JGroups stack. Out of the box, the bind addresses for clustering are bound to a private network interface with 127.0.0.1 as default IP address. You have to edit your the standalone-ha.xml or domain.xml sections discussed in the Bind Address chapter.

private network config
    <interfaces>
        ...
        <interface name="private">
            <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.private:127.0.0.1}"/>
        </interface>
    </interfaces>
    <socket-binding-group name="standard-sockets" default-interface="public" port-offset="${jboss.socket.binding.port-offset:0}">
        ...
        <socket-binding name="jgroups-mping" interface="private" port="0" multicast-address="${jboss.default.multicast.address:230.0.0.4}" multicast-port="45700"/>
        <socket-binding name="jgroups-tcp" interface="private" port="7600"/>
        <socket-binding name="jgroups-tcp-fd" interface="private" port="57600"/>
        <socket-binding name="jgroups-udp" interface="private" port="55200" multicast-address="${jboss.default.multicast.address:230.0.0.4}" multicast-port="45688"/>
        <socket-binding name="jgroups-udp-fd" interface="private" port="54200"/>
        <socket-binding name="modcluster" port="0" multicast-address="224.0.1.105" multicast-port="23364"/>
        ...
    </socket-binding-group>

Things you’ll want to configure are the jboss.bind.address.private and jboss.default.multicast.address as well as the ports of the services on the clustering stack.

Note
It is possible to cluster {project_name} without IP Multicast, but this topic is beyond the scope of this guide. For more information, see JGroups in the {appserver_jgroups_name}.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
