Chapter 43. Recommendations for Cluster Deployment

  1. All nodes in the cluster should have a synchronized system date-time.

  2. All nodes share sandboxes stored on a shared or replicated filesystem. The filesystem shared among all nodes is a single point of failure. Thus, the use of a replicated filesystem is strongly recommended.

  3. All nodes share a DB, thus it must support transactions. I.e. The MySQL table engine, MyISAM, may cause unusual behavior because it is not transactional.

  4. All nodes share a DB, which is a single point of failure. Use of a clustered DB is strongly recommended.

  5. Configure the license by license.file property or upload it in the Web GUI, so it is stored in the database. Do not use clover-license.war.
