Scale up the ASE cluster by adding one node at a time to an active cluster without disrupting traffic. To add a new cluster node, enter the peer_node IP address or hostname in the cluster.conf file of the ASE node and then start the ASE node. The new node will synchronize configuration and cookie data from the peer nodes. After loading, it will become part of the cluster. For example, if the IP of the first node is with port 8020, then the peer_node parameter would be

; ASE cluster configuration. These configurations apply only when you have enabled cluster in the api_config file.
; Unique cluster ID for each cluster. All the nodes in the same cluster should have the same cluster ID.
; Cluster management port.
; Cluster's active nodes. This can be a comma separated list of nodes in ipv4_address:cluster_manager_port format.
