Need detailed documents for Webdispatcher as EP7's load balancer

Hi!

We have a portal (EP7) with some java application servers.

We want to use SAP webdispatcher as our portal's load balancer.

We have a doc from SAP called "How to implement workload distribution -- EP6".

However this doc is very hard to understand.

Would you please share your document ?

Points guaranteed. Thanks!

    Using SAP Webdispatcher as a load balancer

    You need to create a icr file & set the parameter in PFL file

    Set the parameter

    wdisp/server_info_location=

    <b>UNIX: file:///<Path>/info.icr

    MS: file://C:\< Path>\info.icr</b>

    The file info.icr contains

    Version 1.0

    J2EE19416500

    J2EEhost15XX00LB=2

    P4host1 5XX04LB=2

    J2EE19416501

    J2EEhost2 5XX00LB=1

    P4host2 5XX04LB=1

    Where <b>J2EE19416500</b> & <b>J2EE19416501</b> are the ID of server instance & XX represent instance number.

    For Eg: wdisp/server_info_location=C:\< Path>\info.icr

    Hope this solve your query....reward point if helps

      Hi Swapnil,

      you do not have to configure an info.icr file due to the fact that the

      web dispatcher is retrieving its load-balancing information directly

      from the message server of the SCS instance..

      The info.icr file was introduced for older J2EE engines when no

      message server was available.

      Kind Regards
