Parameter: loadBalancer

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter creates a load balancer process that listens to incoming client requests on the communications port specified by the httpPort parameter. The load balancer process forwards client connection requests to an available thread on a servlet container process. This parameter requires at least one servlet container process to which to forward client requests. The servlet container process can be on the local Service Manager system or on another system that is part of the same virtual group.
