    1. Tomcat is not a load balancer, its a web application server.

    2. You cannot host/configure BILP/CMC on Netscaler as it is not a webapp server it is a load balancer only.

    3. You need to host BILP/CMC (BOE webapps) on a webapp servers (tomcat, websphere, weblogic, jboss etc) , which you can then load balance via netscaler.

    4. there are no specific requirements for BOE on netscaler or any other load balancer, except that session persistence has to be enabled.
    Also, any caching or filtering netscaler might be doing has to be disabled and any timeouts on netscaler have to be adjusted to allow for longest report to run/export.

    Hi Ayoub,

    We are in the design phase of doing a similar env as yours. Would really appreciate your thoughts:

    1. Do you give tomcat's cluster name or individual server names to the LB?

    2. Did you use the LB for Clustered BO?

    3. If so, did you give the BO's clustered name or individual server names to the LB?

    Thank you in advance
