Starting with version 5.2.0 Tigase introduces a load balancing functionality allowing users to be redirected to the most suitable cluster node. Functionality relies on a see-other-host XMPP stream error message. Basic principle behind the mechanism is that user will get redirect if the host returned by the implementaion differ from the host to which user currently tries to connect. It is required that the user JID to be known for the redirection to work correctly.
