Is anyone using Terracotta to provide high-availability for Shibboleth,
and if so, how well does it work in practice ? We are currently testing
a pair of load-balanced Shibboleth 2 IdPs, and find that the Terracotta
client just connects to one of the servers. If this server fails or is
reloaded, the client does not try to reconnect, and the session sharing
no longer happens. I've followed the instructions for installing
Terracotta on the Shibboleth 2 Wiki, as far as I can tell, but do not
understand the details of how Terracotta works.
Thanks for any suggestions.
