Dynamic Load Balancing in GlassFish Application Server

The GlassFish application server provides good facilities for
cluster management and load balancing. Still, sometimes we need to
have more fine-grained control over how our cluster nodes are
loaded with requests. One such condition can happen in a shared
environment when we are using the processing power to host several
applications, ranging from databases to batch job processing to
application servers serving requests that come from different
customers. Such conditions can lead us to change the load routed
toward each GlassFish instance during different time slices. We can
change the routed load manually, but having the ability to change
it automatically based on defined rules is something very
desirable.
