Information Steward clustering question?

Hi All,

We planned the below architecture for the Information Steward/DS/IPS environment.

1) Server 1 - IPS + DS MC/APS/Server Manager + IS Full product

2) Server 2 - IPS + DS MC/APS/Server Manager + IS Full product

3) Server 3 - DS Job Server 1

3) Server 4 - DS Job Server 2

3) Server 5 - DS Job Server 3

3) Server 6 - DS Job Server 4

All the DS Job servers will point to same repository

All the IS Job servers will point to same repository

All the IPS CMS will point to same repository

To make the DS job servers in clustered mode I will create DS Server Group and include the 4 job servers from 4 servers and 4 job servers will share the same cache space.

IPS by default provides Clustering/Load Balancing when primary and secondary pointing to same CMS DB.

Now my question how the information steward clustering works?

Do we have to perform any configuration to enable IS clustering?

Does IS job servers have any default load balancing algorithm?

If IS has auto load balance mechanism how it will route the requests to DS server group instead of single job server on any server?

    Hi Gopal and the wider community,

    I am also looking for the answer to this question. If I create 2 Info Steward Job Servers on different physical servers I can place them in a Job Server Group, but I can't see how Info Steward is ever aware of this group name so how can any sort of load balancing occur?

    Many thanks

    Mike

      Hi Aasavari,

      Many thanks for the information. I did not realise that the AL_MACHINE_INFO table was used for this purpose so good to understand that.

      I have another question which I will start a new thread for.

      Best regards,

      Mike
