How to have two apache web servers in load balancing?

+2 votes

I am asking best practice/info/docs of how to have 2 apache web servers in load balancing.
- Which httpd module do I have to load in the http conf?
- I was reading that I have to have a web load balancer on top of them? Is it necessary? Can they accept requests from a cisco /F5 load balancer?
- What about persistent connection?
- Also we''ll have a mySQL server? Any more info about this?

I have an idea how to setup Apache for doing load balancer based on mod_proxy and mod_balance modules. But in my case the backend server requires ssl client certificate authentication and therefore the Apache Server cannot terminate the ssl connection.

I do no need http session cookie stickyness. The application is stateless. Can I somehow configure Apache as a transparent balancer?

Or I should use even another software - squid, iptables? The backend application is a web service running on Tomcat.

I would like to know, if there exists any solution in order to synchronize (replicate) sessions between two httpd servers which are configured as load balancers using mod_proxy_balancer? Considering HAProxy, the same functionality exists; it is possible to synchronize the stick table between HAProxy instances. Does mod_proxy_balancer use stick table? Is it possible to synchronize the stick table between two mod_proxy_balancer instances?
