Oracle HTTP Server - Version 10.1.3.0.0 to 10.1.3.4.0 [Release AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
- Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.3.X.X is installed in a distributed topology
- The topology contains three Oracle Homes - 'ohs only' (ohs1), 'oc4j only' (oc4j1) and another 'oc4j only' (oc4j2). The two oc4j homes are on separate nodes.
- A J2EE application is deployed to a group consisting of two OC4J instances
- First, using the default Oc4jSelectMethod roundrobin in mod_oc4j.conf, the application is accessed and a note of the active OC4J instance is noted.
- Next, the active OC4J instance is shut down cleanly from Application Server Control or using opmnctl
- In this case, a clean failover occurs to the other available OC4J instance in the group.
- If a weighted load-balancing scheme is used instead of the default random such as :
- http://<HOST>:port/oc4j-status shows correctly that only one oc4j instance is available,so the notification is being received by HTTP Server.
- After some time, or after a restart of OHS, new requests are successfully routed to the available OC4J instance.
- The problem reproduces if the ons discovery method is static or dynamic.
- The problem reproduces if the oc4j mount points are static or dynamic
