To support a pool of Lotus Notes
® Traveler Servers, you will need to provide a single URL entry point for the devices. This can be accomplished by employing an IP sprayer or load balancer, allowing a device to connect to one URL and have the request routed to any of the Lotus Notes
Traveler servers in the pool.
Traveler has minimal requirements for an IP sprayer:
- Provides a single URL entry point and supports the proxying of device requests to two or more Lotus Notes Traveler servers
- Round robin load balancing. This will spread the load evenly across the Domino® HTTP tasks as desired. Lotus Notes Traveler provides its own load balancing based on server load characteristics after it has received the requests from Domino HTTP .
- Ability to detect when a Lotus Notes Traveler server is no longer responding (to allow for failover).
After configuring an IP Sprayer, you must update the Lotus Notes
Traveler external URL to point the devices to the URL of the sprayer. Refer to Setting the external server URL
for more information. The external URL setting must be updated on each Lotus Notes
Traveler server in the high availability pool.
The primary link for Lotus Notes
Traveler has been changed from /servlet/traveler
, so as to make it easier for users to enter the link into their mobile devices.
