Intro to Load-Balancing Tomcat with httpd and mod_jk - Christopher Schultz, Total Child Health, Inc.
Apache Tomcat is a Java servlet container that is also a very capable web server. Learn how to build upon Tomcat's solid foundation by introducing httpd with mod_jk to improve your applications' scalability and fault-tolerance. We'll be covering basic "Getting Started"-style configurations that you can play-around with immediately, uncovering some advanced load-balancing features, knobs, and dials, as well as handling some practical topics like how to gracefully drain and bring-down a back-end node for maintenance, upgrades, etc.

Tomcat Clustering: Part 1 - Reverse Proxies - Mark Thomas, Pivotal
This is the first part of a three part series looking at Tomcat clustering.
Apache Tomcat provides many options for expanding a Tomcat installation beyond a single instance. This series of presentations, Mark will review the options for load-balancing requests across multiple instances and for replicating session data between those instances. The pros and cons of each of the options will be discussed to enable attendees to make the right choices for their environment. The presentations will also cover common misconceptions and configuration mistakes to enable attendees to avoid those pitfalls.
This first session will cover reverse proxing since this forms the basis for load-balancing.

Monitoring Apache Tomcat - Christopher Schultz, Total Child Health, Inc.
Learn what information is available from both the Java Virtual Machine and Tomcat’s internals via Java Management Extensions (JMX), how to best access these types of data, and practical techniques for actively monitoring your Tomcat instances using open-source tools such as Nagios, Ichinga, and other similar monitoring tools.

Choosing tomcat Connectors: Internals and Performances - Jean-Frederic Clere, Red Hat
Tomcat directly-supports a total of 6 connector configurations, many of which are confusing to newcomers or whose usage has been passed-down in arcane configurations that none of the users actually understand. In this talk, you’ll learn the differences between BIO and NIO, what APR can do for you, and whether or not using AJP makes any sense. You'll be able to see what a proxy can do for you and see what connectors are likely to be the best-fit for your environments. You will see some performance comparisons — including the results of a race against Apache httpd and other servers. A part of the presentation will be dedicated to the Tomcat8 new connector and WebSockets.
