We are a ‘n’ node system (with one ActorSystem per node) and would like to run ‘m’ ActorSystems on it for load balancing. Each node should only run one ActorSystem. I could use ‘m’ ClusterSingletons (and then leave every other singleton clusters. Sharded cluster might be used where all nodes in a similar way (by leaving). Is there a more natural way where the Leader actively manages ‘m’ Actors? There is no shared state and so that is not a concern here. I didn’t see any generic cluster examples (where I guess the Leader node implements the above functionality). Using Singleton cluster manager to get the ActorRef is nice and would prefer an approach which gives us this functionality.
