    If I understand correctly by "active-active" clustering you mean a cluster will all nodes "equal" and participating in all Data Hub processes, i.e. data loading, composition and publication. If it's so, the I would strongly advise against doing so. The main concern is data integrity and consistency. DataHub restricts compositions/publications to one at a time in a given data pool for exactly that reason. Otherwise, data loss is possible or older data may override newer data.

    Another set of problems is related to recovery after crash/restart while DataHub was performing a composition or publication. Normally only master node is responsible for that recovery. With multiple nodes being active and performing that recovery the correct data recovery is impossible.

    The only condition when active-active cluster would work correctly, if data pools would locked to a specific node in the cluster. But that is not a true cluster but rather several independent Data Hub instances.
