We're getting more specific, that's good.
- Sticky sessions have been supported for a long while now.
- The cluster code has what appears to me a reasonable number of logging statemets. They're now all commons-logging so you can control the verbosity by configuring commons-logging. If you'd like specific logging statements added, we'll be glad to do so, send .diffs to the mailing list.
- The admin console is designed to be confined to one server. While it might be interesting to enhance it to monitor a whole cluster, that job right now is left to console like MC4J [which support Tomcat out of the box]. Tomcat 5.5 uses JDK 5.0's built-in JMX support to make JMX intergration and monitoring even easier.
- The Doc is at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/cluster-howto.html
(plus the JavaDoc is available of course). Any additions you want, feel free to suggest, but just saying "better doc for all the clustering features" is almost as useless as saying "better clustering functionality" ;)
And again, the best place to discuss these is the tomcat-user list (tomcat-user at jakarta dot apache dot org), whose discussions are archived so we can take a look at them whenever we're bored and have nothing to do but work on your vague suggestions ;) [Your meaning not you specifically, but everyone]
