multicast for JBoss AS 7.1.1 in virtualized/cloud environment

luca gioppo Novice

I'm trying to update my infrastructure of JBoss cluster.

In 4.3 we used to bind the multicast stream to a dedicated nic as this was the advise we received at the time.

Now we are going to deploy JBoss 7.1.1 on a cloud environment (a cloudstack env completely under our control).

My questions are:

1) is multicast needed/advisable?

2) does it make sense to create a virtual nic and to bind the multicast stream to it (it should go on a separate VLAN of the cloudstack's tenant)

 

Any architectural advices on this subject?

We plan to use puppet for automate configuration, but any good practice is appreciated.

Thanks

Luca
