High Availability Clusters with Eclipse Mosquitto

Reduce the chances of downtime and increase uptime operational performance

High Availability (HA) is the ability of a system to work at optimal performance continuously for a long period of time.  This means that the systems should work without fail. The MQTT Mosquitto broker is designed to be stable and consistently functional by clustering. Two or more broker nodes form a cluster. When one node fails the other nodes take over (fail-over). Thus, reducing the chance of downtime and increasing uptime.

The broker cluster centrally manages:

  • Persistence of messages
  • Synchronization of nodes
  • Access Control Lists (ACL) for clients
  • Persistence of connections

How clustering works

Illustration of how High Availability works

Normal operation:

  • Current main node channels traffic
  • Other nodes in sleep mode
  • Synchronization via Cluster Management (CM):
    • Messages
    • Information on clients
    • Overall cluster status

Fail-over operation:

  • The current main node fails
  • Cluster re-organizes and makes a different node the main node
  • The new main node picks up
    • Messages
    • Information on clients
