XC64: WebSphere InterChange Server on HP MC/ServiceGuard

Downloadable files


Abstract

This SupportPac contains resources that you can use to control and monitor WebSphere InterChange Server with MC/ServiceGuard on the HP-UX operating system.

Download Description

HP MC/ServiceGuard is a high-availability environment for HP-UX systems. It provides a framework in which you can control and monitor business-critical applications. The cluster software and its associated packages monitor the health of various components and, when necessary. it restarts services on standby machines.

This SupportPac contains scripts, which you can use to control and monitor WebSphere InterChange Server, Object Request Broker Daemon (ORBD), SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters (Adapter for JDBC and Adapter for WebSphere MQ). You can use them in a MC/ServiceGuard package to provide automated failure detection, local restart, and failover capability.

The scripts in the SupportPac include functions that do the following activities:
• Starts WebSphere InterChange Server, the ORBD, the SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters in a manner that is suitable for MC/ServiceGuard operations
• Monitors the status of WebSphere InterChange Server, the ORBD, the SNMP agent, and WebSphere Integration Business Adapters
• Shuts down and restarts WebSphere InterChange Server, the ORBD, the SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters under MC/ServiceGuard control

The SupportPac also contains information about how to configure WebSphere InterChange Server for HP-UX with MC/ServiceGuard A.11.16. You can either use the scripts that are included in the SupportPac directly or modify them for a particular environment.

POSSIBLE USES
This SupportPac allows WebSphere InterChange Server, the ORBD, the SNMP agent, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters to run within logical hosts in a MC/ServiceGuard cluster. WebSphere InterChange Server components running under cluster control will benefit from high availability; if a failure occurs, any affected components can be moved to a surviving node.

In addition to operating when a failure occurs, a highly available WebSphere InterChange Server can continue to provide service 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 MC/ServiceGuard support, the local restart capability is extended to include restart capability on another workstation within a MC/ServiceGuard Cluster, for WebSphere InterChange Server, the ORBD, the 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.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED
The SupportPac is aimed at professionals trained in WebSphere InterChange Server for HP-UX and MC/ServiceGuard.
