Setup a load balancer for cluster installation

It is recommended that you instal and configure a load-balancer software to balance the requests between the installed nodes.

To setup a load balancer software:

  • In Administration, go to the Components tab.
  • Open the Rule Engine component.
  • Set the Component URL property to the load-balancer proxy URL.

As an alternative, you can also use a solution that monitors and starts servers when not responding. In this case, Rule Engine Server provides scripts for start, stop and status.

See Cluster considerations for planning and installation details of a cluster solution for Rule Engine Server.
