Forum OpenACS Q&A: Cluster question

Posted by Jose Agustin Lopez Bueno on
Hello, all!

We have a load balancing system in our
University: two aolservers with OpenACS and dotLearn
doing requests to a other server with Postgres.
The two aolservers are load balanced by un frontend.
We are not using the cluster parameters in kernel
conf. This entails synchronization problems between
aolservers (cached things, I suppose).

Are there anybody using the Cluster procs? Our system
is in production and I don´t want to do tests with them.

Or I must resign to this assembly.

Best regards,

Posted by Harish Krishnan on runs on a similar configuration except that we use oracle as our backend. You can build a test environment and do simple testing with the parameters switched on. AFAIK you need to be careful about the the algorithm you use for load balancing.
