This SupportPac contains data services that can be used to control and monitor WebSphere InterChange Server with Sun Cluster 3.1.
Sun Cluster 3.1 is a high availability environment for Solaris systems. It provides a framework in which business-critical applications can be controlled and monitored. The cluster software and its associated data services monitor the health of various components and, when necessary, will restart services on standby machines.
This SupportPac contains data services that can be used to control and monitor WebSphere InterChange Server, including SNMP agent, Persistent Naming Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters. You can use these data services to provide automated failure detection, local restart, or failover capability.
The scripts in the SupportPac include functions that do the following activities:
• Register the data services
• Generate start/stop/monitor scripts and configuration file for WebSphere Business Integration Adapters
• Start WebSphere InterChange Server, Persistent Naming Server, SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration adapters in a manner suitable for Sun Cluster operation
• Monitor the status of WebSphere InterChange Server, Persistent Naming Server, SNMP agent, and WebSphere Integration Business Adapters
• Shut down and restart WebSphere InterChange Server, Persistent Naming Server, SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration adapters under Sun Cluster control
The SupportPac also contains information about how to configure WebSphere InterChange Server for Solaris with Sun Cluster 3.1. You can either use the scripts included in the SupportPac directly or modify them for a particular environment.
This SupportPac allows WebSphere InterChange Server, Persistent Naming Server, SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration adapters to run within logical hosts in a Sun Cluster. WebSphere InterChange Server components that are run under cluster control benefit from high availability, because in the event of a failure, any affected components can be moved to a surviving node.
It is possible to run one or more WebSphere InterChange Server components in each logical host and to simultaneously run multiple logical hosts containing WebSphere InterChange Server components. It is therefore possible to create standby or fully active configurations.
In addition to operating in the presence of failures, a highly available WebSphere InterChange Server can continue to provide service during periods when a workstation must be shut down for scheduled maintenance. An administrator can deliberately initiate the movement of a WebSphere InterChange Server and its associated resources, from one workstation to another.
This support provides automatic monitoring of a WebSphere InterChange Server and the ability to perform local restarts. With the Sun Cluster support, the local restart capability is extended to include restart capability on another workstation within a Sun Cluster, for WebSphere InterChange Server, Persistent Naming Server, SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters. The capability to restart components on another workstation allows them to continue to be available even after power losses, hardware failures, and other types of failures that previously would have led to a loss of service.
