EIM-WIM Distributed Deployment Basics
Reference Chapter 2 of the 4.3 SRND for details of a distributed deployment model. For purposes of this training course:
|Server Name||Primary Purpose|
|Database Server||SQL Server 2005 Databases|
|File & Messaging Server|| EIM/WIM application files, process logs, etc, accessed by other servers via "Cisco" UNC share.
Messaging Server is "overseer" of all Application Servers
|Services Server||Runs almost all java.exe and javaw.exe processes|
|Application Server||Runs JBoss servers|
|Web Server||Runs IIS, hosts all agent and customer chat connections|
- File server path is configured (hardcoded) during component installation.
- The startup files of all processes and Application servers specify where all logging should occur.
- C:\CIM\eService\config\egpl_log4j.xml tells processes what to name their log files.
Single Points of Failure
- Services Server
- File Server
- Database Server(s) (If no DB clustering)
- Messaging Server
