    <title>The Cluster Valve object


<section name="Introduction">
  A cluster valve is no different from any other <a href="valve.html">Tomcat Valve.
  The cluster valves are interceptors in the invokation chain for HTTP requests, and the clustering implementation
  uses these valves to make intelligent decision around data and when data should be replicated.
  A cluster valve must implement the <code>org.apache.catalina.ha.ClusterValve interface.
  This is a simple interface that extends the <code>org.apache.catalina.Valve interface.

<section name="org.apache.catalina.ha.tcp.ReplicationValve">
  The <code>ReplicationValve will notify the cluster at the end of a HTTP request
  so that the cluster can make a decision whether there is data to be replicated or not.
  <subsection name="Attributes">
      <attribute name="className" required="true">
        Set value to <code>org.apache.catalina.ha.tcp.ReplicationValve
      <attribute name="filter" required="false">
        For known file extensions or urls, you can use a filter to 
        notify the cluster that the session has not been modified during this 
        request and the cluster doesn't have to probe the session managers for changes.
        If there is a filter match, the cluster assumes there has been no session change.
        An example filter would look like <code>filter=".*\.gif;.*\.js;.*\.jpg;.*\.png;.*\.htm;.*\.html;.*\.css;.*\.txt;"
        The filter uses regular expressions and each filter is delimited by a semi colon.
      <attribute name="primaryIndicator" required="false">
        Boolean value, so to true, and the replication valve will insert a request attribute with the name
        defined by the <code>primaryIndicatorName attribute.
        The value inserted into the request attribute is either <code>Boolean.TRUE or 
      <attribute name="primaryIndicatorName" required="false">
        Default value is <code>org.apache.catalina.ha.tcp.isPrimarySession
        The value defined here is the name of the request attribute that contains the boolean value
        if the session is primary on this server or not.
      <attribute name="statistics" required="false">
        Boolean value. Set to <code>true if you want the valve to collect request statistics.
        Default value is <code>false

<section name="org.apache.catalina.ha.session.JvmRouteBinderValve">
  In case of a mod_jk failover, the <code>JvmRouteBinderValve will replace the 
  <code>jvmWorker attribute in the session Id, to make future requests stick to this
  node. If you want failback capability, don't enable this valve, but if you want your failover to stick,
  and for mod_jk not to have to keep probing the node that went down, you use this valve.
  <subsection name="Attributes">
      <attribute name="className" required="true">
      <attribute name="enabled" required="false">
        Default value is <code>true
        Runtime attribute to turn on and off turn over of the session's jvmRoute value.
