IBM® Tivoli® Service Automation Manager (TSAM) V7.2.2 introduces the concept of extension, a set of Tivoli Service Automation Manager software components that can implement a new IT service automation solution (known as a service definition) or add capabilities to existing service definitions. In this article, the authors explain how to tune the load balancer policy to your system's needs; how to add and remove application servers as the workload of the business application changes; and how to modify the firewall rules and why you might need to do that. In the prequel to this article, the authors defined a scenario in which the desired result is to securely deploy a three-tier J2EE application to the cloud and demonstrated how to set up and provision extensions in Tivoli Service Automation Manager to accomplish the deployment.
