M.App Enterprise Load Balanced

by Technical Evangelist ‎05-24-2018 01:23 AM - edited ‎05-24-2018 01:56 AM (1,030 Views)

 

Here are some things to consider when using M.App Enterprise in a load balanced scenario. (This article does not cover the actual implementation of the load balancer, since there are different types of it.)

The installation of M.App Enterprise on the particular application server stays the same.

 

The only mandatory change to a standard deployment scenario is:

M.App Enterprise warehouse must be located at a network share (available for all load balanced application servers and the tile service production server)

Hi there

 

Thanks for the post, but just a few questions regarding the richclient and mobile connections:

 

  • How would mobile connections work in a load balanced setup? Currently mobile connections uses either <servername>\sxservice or <IP>\sxservice. If one has 2 or more MappEnt servers, to which IP or ServerName would one connect? 
  • Same question for richclient users and for browser apps?

 

Or can you further explain the request handeling in such a setup?

You always use the Load Balancer's URL in your M.App Enterprise configuration, regardless of Desktop, Browser or Mobile.

 

Here is an example: (Hardware load balancing)

Application Server 1: 204.0.34.61

Application Server 2: 204.0.34.62

 

Load Balancer: 204.0.34.60

 

So you would always use http://204.0.34.60 in your configurations.
