You can configure PingAccess in a clustered environment to provide higher scalability and availability for critical services.
Availability and performance are often at opposite ends of the deployment spectrum. You might need to make some configuration tradeoffs that balance availability with performance to accommodate specific deployment goals.
To learn more about how to set up cluster components in the PingAccess administrative console, choose one of the following sections:
- For more information on how to set up and manage the administrative nodes in a clustered PingAccess deployment, see Administrative nodes.
- For more information on how to set up and manage the engine nodes in a clustered PingAccess deployment, see Engines.
- For more information on how to configure new engine nodes to auto-register themselves at initial startup, see Engine Registration.
These topics contain instructions to set up specific pieces of a cluster. For more information about clustering and setting up an efficient clustered environment, you should review the PingAccess Clustering in PingAccess Reference Guide. This guide provides information about subjects such as cluster node statuses, node failure implications, and which files could affect cluster settings.
