This page summarizes the clusters that have been configured in the current WebLogic Server domain.
A cluster defines groups of WebLogic Server servers that work together to increase scalability and reliability.
A cluster appears to clients to be a single WebLogic Server instance. The servers that constitute a cluster can run on the same machine, or be located on different machines.

The following table lists all of the data points that you can display in columns on this page.
Name Description Name
The name that you specified when you created the cluster.
The address that forms a portion of the URL a client uses to connect to this cluster, and that is used for generating EJB handles and entity EJB failover addresses. (This address may be either a DNS host name that maps to multiple IP addresses or a comma-separated list of single address host names or IP addresses.)
Defines the address to be used by clients to connect to this cluster. This address may be either a DNS host name that maps to multiple IP addresses or a comma separated list of single address host names or IP addresses. If network channels are configured, it is possible to set the cluster address on a per channel basis.
The multicast address used by cluster members to communicate with each other.
The valid range is from from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. The default value used by WebLogic Server is 184.108.40.206. You should avoid using multicast addresses in the range x.0.0.1
This address should be unique to this cluster and should not be shared by other applications.
The multicast port (between 1 and 65535) used by cluster members to communicate with each other.
Defines the multicast port used by cluster members to communicate with each other.
The number of network hops (between 1 and 255) that a cluster multicast message is allowed to travel.
Defines the number of network hops that a cluster multicast message is allowed to travel. 1 restricts the cluster to one subnet.
Default Load Algorithm
The algorithm to be used for load-balancing between replicated services if none is specified for a particular service. The round-robin algorithm cycles through a list of WebLogic Server instances in order. Weight-based load balancing improves on the round-robin algorithm by taking into account a pre-assigned weight for each server. In random load balancing, requests are routed to servers at random.
