PURPOSE
-------
To provide the actual steps needed to set up load balancing in 11i
Applications.

SCOPE & APPLICATION


-------------------
This note is directed at DBA's or those responsible for implementing
load
balancing.

LOAD BALANCING IN RELEASE 11i APPLICATIONS


------------------------------------------
The load balancing feature is controlled at the forms server connection
level.
Load balancing requirements include a metrics server and at least two
metrics
clients. Metrics clients are separate machines, or can exist on the
same box
with a metrics server. A metrics client is created by replicating the
application server tier on different machines.

To make the newly created application server a metrics client, the


following
changes need to be made to the metrics client start up script on each
instance.

1. The script adfmcctl.sh needs to be a mirror on each instance. The


changes can be made manually or by moving a copy of the .sh file to
replace the
original.

Specific detail:
d2lc60 $FMS_HOST $FMS_DATA_PORT 0 1 f60webmx >> $FRMLOG 2>&1 &
exit_code=$?

$FMS_HOST = This is the Metrics server machine name


$FMS_DATA_PORT= all Metrics Clients will use the same port

The "1" reflected above is a weighting factor [refered to as scaling].


This
can be adjusted to a value of 10 and will give a multiple to the total
number
of processes detected by the client. 1 represents a large (4cpu)
instance .
10 would be a small (1cpu) instance.

2. The appsweb.cfg for each instance will need to be modified as


follows:
MetricsServerPort: <FMS_REQ_PORT> (this is from the metrics server
startup
script)
MetricsServerErrorURL: <this is optional>
ServerName: %LEASTLOADEDHOST%
comment out the domainName, this should be provided by the Metrics
Client.
(note: on some operating systems it may be necessary to leave this blank
as the download will fail looking expressly for domainName, if it is
commented
out)

Note: To use https in a load balancing environment, you will need to


import the
certificate using Oracle Wallet Manager (Note 123718.1 section III SSL
setup for
Oracle Forms 6i Server) for each Applications server tier that will be
used in
the load balancing envrionment.
