Sometimes it may be necessary to determine which application server node a session is hitting for troubleshooting purposes. This article outlines how to do this for an environment with multiple application servers.
Each application server will have an instance-id/node-name that uniquely identifies that instance. If using JBoss, navigate to the standalone.xml file for the application server node you would like to hit and find the line where "instance-id" is defined. If using Tomcat, navigate to setenv.bat|sh file and find the line where DjvmRoute is defined.
Note: This approach (modified slightly for the browser) will work for the Chrome and Firefox as well.
This article applies to Appian environments with multiple application servers.
