Load Balancing Using Httpd2.4 with tomcat instance as Web Server

Load balancing is a computer networking method for distributing workloads across multiple computing resources, such as computers, a computer cluster, network links, central processing units or disk drives. Load balancing aims to optimize resource use, maximize throughput, minimize response time, and avoid overload of any one of the resources. Using multiple components with load balancing instead of a single component may increase reliability through redundancy.

Here is the load balancing scenario in my lab,

  • Apache httpd 2.4 will be use as load Balancer
  • Apache Tomcat 1 will be use as web server 1
  • Apache Tomcat 2 will be use as web server 2

Setting up httpd2.4 as load balancer
Before beginning we have to download the Httpd2.4 that we will use as load balancer. You can download it here.
--> extract it in the specific directory
After that, we will need a connector ( so Apache httpd2.4 can connect to tomcat instance. You can download it here.
--> copy it to [Apache Installation dir]\modules\
The next step is about configuring "httpd.conf" that located in [Apache Installation dir]\ conf\httpd.conf
--> Add this line to that file
here is the slide of my presentation in my college about Load Balancing, download it.
here is the complete project about my load balancing, download it.

How to know the real extension of a file?

In computer forensic challenge we usually work with a file with no extension like the file in red rectangle below
The next question, how we can know the real extension of those files?
If you want to know the real extension of those files the first thing you can do is check the "file signature" from those files.
what is file signature?
 a file signature is data used to identify or verify the content of a file. In particular, it may refer to:
  • File magic number: bytes within a file used to identify the format of the file; generally a short sequence of bytes (most are 2-4 bytes long) placed at the beginning of the file (wikipedia)
     1 byte = 8 bits = 2 Hex
     2 - 4 bytes = 4-8 hex
to know the "file signature" a file the first thing you can do is check the hex value of that file (because most of file signature is stored as hex value on database),
to do this you can follow this steps:
1. download this tool "HxD Editor"
2. after download, just install and open it.

3. open the file you want to know the real extension (click menu File --> Open)

4. copy first 4-8 hex value from HxD Editor
in example we copy first 6 digit Hex value : FF D8 FF
5. find file signature database in internet, like this one
the other file signature database:
6. rename the file with real extension

ta daaaa :)
For your exercise please find the right extesion for "Mocca" file :D
this is the file that you can download.
