How to stop traffic from httpd/mod_cluster for an application

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have an application deployed across multiple JBoss nodes all configured with httpd/mod_cluster. We don't want requests for that application to go to some of those nodes. How would we achieve that?
  • How do we configure mod_cluster's excluded contexts to restrict and prevent access to certain applications from the httpd loadbalancer?


  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 5, 6, 7
  • JBoss Enterprise Web Server (EWS)
  • Apache httpd
