Using Load-Balancing Mechanisms in VMS Clusters
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: Clusters
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/11/99   11:30 AM     Duration: 60 Min.     Room: 2

Presenter:
Keith Parris
President, Integrity Computing, Inc.  

Abstract:
VMS itself, as well as some cluster-aware layered software products and hardware such as storage controllers, provide mechanisms to implement load balancing, as opposed to simple failover capability, in a VMS Cluster environment. This session explores the different mechanisms available for load balancing, how they work, where their weaknesses and shortcomings lie, and how a system manager can best use them when planning, configuring and operating a VMS Cluster. It also explores areas where load-balancing is not provided or may be inadequate and strategies for dealing with problems in these areas.

Objectives:
Identify and know how to use the mechanisms that exist in VMS and related products to balance loads in a VMS Cluster
 
Know the strengths and limitations of the various load-balancing mechanisms as implemented
 
Identify cases where no or poor load-balancing mechanisms exist, and identify methods one might use to control/balance loads in these cases  

Prerequisites for attendees:
Attendees should be familiar with basic VMS Cluster configurations and related system management tasks.

Required Skill Level:
Advanced
For experienced professionals in application development & system management; those working on large & complex systems
