apache Split - Specs


I'm looking into setting to use an Apache Split. A few questions

- What are typical server specs for the Web Application Server (CPU, RAM, etc.)? Any rules of thumb?

- I'm interested in having two Web App servers that are load balanced. Is there any special considerations with this approach and Apache Split?

  • Regarding the second part of your question: are you asking about using a load balancer in place of Apache, or in addition to (i.e., LB -> Apache -> Tomcat)?

  • My initial thought was in addition to it LB >> Web Server 1 || Web Server 2

    However, this is admittedly a new area for me so I'm not tied to any particular solution. I currently have Tomcat on the same servers as my Applications. I want to create a web tier and, if I need new servers, will need to place the request soon.

    Webapp server sizing is in the sizing docs:

    There are no special load balancing considerations for the split deployment.
    If you have in mind LB -->apache 1/2-->webapp server 1/2 type of architecture where apache 1 --> weapp 1 and apache 2 ->webapp 2 - just make sure session persistance is set.

    This is basically the configuration that I was picturing. The web Tier would be new and I'm looking for any recommendations regarding setup. I began sketching this prior to reading about the Apache Split concept and would like to factor it in to this model.
