What Is Cluster Cats for ColdFusion Application Server 4?

Included with the Enterprise version of ColdFusion is Cluster Cats by Bright Tiger Software. A software-based load-balancing solution, Cluster Cats monitors your ColdFusion Application Server (CFAS) and can redirect requests away from a server that is beginning to enter a "busy" state. Note that Cluster Cats does not work on the network layer. When Cluster Cats redirects requests to another server, it does so by redirecting to the URL of another machine in the cluster. This means that if your server is completely out of commission (that is, not turned on), Cluster Cats cannot communicate with it and therefore cannot redirect requests away from it.
