Can we remove or disable the modcluster subsystem from EAP 6/7?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We don't use any httpd/mod_cluster loadbalancer in front of JBoss; do we need the modcluster subsystem on EAP 6? If not, how do we remove it?
  • Is the modcluster subsystem required for any clustering functionality or if we loadbalance with mod_proxy or mod_jk?
  • How can we disable the mod_cluster subsystem?


  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7
  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 6
  • mod_cluster
