Using Couchbase server with memcached-session-manager for Tomcat cluster Session Replication.
We are in process of creating cluster of Tomcat servers. Initially we have evaluated out of Box delta manager it works but when no of servers will be more the multicast may give rise to issues. Similarly all session data is in tomcat servers and not possible to have copy of it on some other non application server for failover purpose. Another alternative suggested is to Use MSM which has two types of config, memcached and membase based. here we can have non application server store for session data.
We have read that couchBase is compatible with membase. Now we have few queries as follows.
1. Can we use two or More machines to have same replica of session data by forming couchbase cluster ?
2. Whether MSM can be used with couchbase ?
3. Can Couchbase persist data to disk and restore back automatically in case machine crashes.
Please suggest us some reading material about how to use couchbase with MSM.
Thanks and warm regards.
