Event Rule Load Balancing

When two or more EFTs are configured in an active-active cluster, which of the EFT nodes executes a Timer or Folder Monitor Event Rule is determined by load balancing. Timer and Folder Monitor Event Rules have a "high availability" hyperlink with which you can specify if the rule will be load balanced. Clicking the hyperlink allows you to specify which node will run the Event Rule. The rule is load balanced based on which specified node is next available.

To specify nodes for Event Rule load balancing

  1. In the Rule Builder, in the Timer or Folder Monitor event, click the high availability link.

    The Run on Nodes dialog box appears.

  2. Specify the nodes that are to run the rule (using the computer name), then click Add. Computer names are case sensitive. If you want a certain node to handle more of the load, list it more than once in the node list (e.g., NODE1, NODE2, NODE2, NODE2, NODE 3...) You can specify nodes by IP Address (both IPv4 and IPv6).
    After you specify the nodes, the event expands to include "with default backup list."

  3. Click "with default backup list" to specify the default backup list.

  4. Click OK to save your changes in the rule.
