[jitsi-users] Failover for jicofo


#1

Hi,

I'm aware that multiple jitsi video bridges can register with the same
jicofo agent to effectively act as a load balancer for the registered jvb
instances:

but does this imply that there can only be one jicofo instance in the
picture?

e.g. if I had jvb1, jvb2, and jvb3 all acting as "pool members" for jicofo1.

I realize that jicofo01 is balancing the load across the jvb pool members.
but what would be the best way to ensure the jicofo itself has failover?

would I need to create a completely distinct second pool e.g. jvb4,jvb5 and
jvb6 registering with a jicofo2 so that the entire setup has a failover?

or is there a way that jvb1 could (for example) regsiter with both jicofo1
and jicofo2?

Thanks,
RD

Hi,

Currently meet.jit.si works as the first option you describe, a new
pool with jicofo and multiple jvb. The important thing is that all
conference participants for a particular room should be forwarded to
the same pool. Currently, all HTTP requests that need to be forwarded
to a particular pool have a parameter ?room= with the name of the
room, which can be used for that forwarding.
