Set up an IBM
® proxy server for use with a cluster of IBM Sametime
® servers. The proxy server can be hosted on a product node, or on a separate computer; it performs routing and caching tasks for the servers in the cluster.
About this task
If you deployed the cluster using a standalone Deployment Manager, you must deploy a WebSphere
proxy server to operate with the cluster. If the cluster uses the Sametime
System Console as its Deployment Manager, the WebSphere
proxy server was automatically deployed on the console but may need to be configured.
If the cluster experiences a high level of demand, you may want to deploy an additional, stand-alone, WebSphere
proxy server to distribute the load and mitigate the single point-of-failure.
