Hi All,
I am working on a web application where we will be using ActiveMQ internally, deployed on tomcat.
In front, to handle traffic we mange to have a hardware load balancer.

But internally, we need a load balancer for ActiveMQ/tomcat.
Any one having idea about a good 'software load balancer'

Hi,
You could use apache's mod_proxy for load balancing (though not sure of the MQ stuff)

If there's a hardware load balancer already, using Apache in addition to that seems strange. The question is: what do you envision this "software load balancer" to accomplish? Any why are you running ActiveMQ within Tomcat, instead of as a separate server process?
