Pinned topic Is horizontal clustering possible in Lotus WebForm Server 3.5.1 ?

‏2009-11-30T13:48:34Z |
Hi,

Wondering if horizontal clustering is possible with Lotus form server 3.5.1 ..!

I saw few docs for Vertical clustering, but couldn't find anything about horizontal clustering.

http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lfwiki.nsf/dx/Configuring_a_Lotus_Forms_3.5.1_Vertical_Cluster_using_WebSphere_Application_Server_7.0.0.5

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/forms/v3r5m0/topic/com.ibm.form.webform.installing.doc/graphics/i_wfsws_g_basic_cluster_v30.gif

If possible, can any one post the link to that doc.

Thanks,
Abdul

    Horizontal clustering is very similar to vertical clustering from a WebSphere AppServer network deployment perspective. When it talks about what node to "deploy the first cluster member" (step #4), just select a node on the same server.

      Hi there,

      Thanks of the reply.

      So I have two Translator Server running on different nodes sharing same database.

      But can they have different "Shared Cache" to be clustered?

      I clustered horizontally, and it seems fine, need to stress test.

        If you're using the same database, you need to have the same "Shared Cache" or else you probably encounter problems. (More than likely as forms are removed from the cache.) Just something to consider.

        good luck

          Thanks again for the reply mbir.

          So same shared cache...

          I completed the horizontal cluster with different Shared Cache. Can I change it now, if yes .. how?

          Or do I need to reinstall one Node from scratch?

          1 more question:

          While installation can we select REMOTE location of Primary Nodes "Shared Cache"?

          Thanks for the support,
          Abdul

            Yes, you can change the location by modifying the fileCacheLocation option in your translator.properties file. (So a clean install is not needed.)

            Also, you can select a remote location for your shared file cache, normally I select a UNC (network) path so everything is consistent.
