Goal

This article describes how to handle messages on a JMS cluster, which is behind the BIGIP F5  ( F5 for short)  load balancer

In a basic configuration of F5, there is one round-robin device directing traffic back to a WLS cluster that is also setup to round-robin. There appears to be a intermittent latency pulling messages from JMS servers, for example from a UDD queue.  So with basic setup there is noticeable slow performance.
