Ah your problem is the session id cookie domain (see below)
I've been able to install Apache2 on Raspi but seems like mod_cluster
is not available for ARM. And so I've been trying to build mod_cluster
on Raspi and now debugging:
A couple other options that would be fun to play with:
1. Using Undertow’s reverse proxy like this (assuming you named the nodes pi1, pi2, and
thus they have a pi1, pi2 jvmroute, which defaults to the host name if you didn’t set
<reverse-proxy name="reverse-proxy" connections-per-thread=“20">
<host name=“http://p1.example:8080" instance-id=“pi1”/>
<host name=“http://p2.example:8080" instance-id=“pi2"/>
2. You could also use undertow 1.1 standalone which has a mod_cluster impl (coming to

What log messages am I looking for ?
You can just use wireshark (which has a jgroups decoder now i think), and look for traffic
when you make changes, but this likely isn’t your problem.

The session ids are indeed different. Just pushed out the latest blog
in this series at:
The session id are shown towards the end in screen snapshots, and are
So the problem is you need to either have a shared cookie domain, or use an LB, since the
cookie domain has to match the URL for the browser to send the same cookie. You can do
this in either the global config (standalone.xml under servlet-container), or you can add
a setting to your web.xml like this:
Then you want to add host entries to hosts:
After you do that you should be able to stick pi1.example and pi2.example in the browser.
