I have applications running on tomcat, previously standalone. Now I have to implement high availability for all apps, so here I am.
I have the option of a hardware load balancer or some other means. I will like to know if there are gotchas I have to worry about, especially since I will like to have a single log file location (a single log file between the two application servers I have is preferable).
What do I need to look out for, will multiple file access from the two servers be an issue? Even on linux?
