Load balancing events to a set of servers
This setup shows load balancing the event to publish it to all three DAS/CEP receivers. The load balanced publishing is done in a Round Robin manner, sending each event to each receiver in a circular order without any priority.
It also handles fail-over cases such as, if
DAS/CEP Receiver-1 is marked as down, then the Data Agent will send the data only to
DAS/CEP Receiver-2 and
DAS/CEP Receiver-3 in a round robin manner. When
DAS/CEP Receiver-1 becomes active after some time, the Data Agent automatically detects it, adds it to the operation, and again starts to load balance between all three receivers. This functionality significantly reduces the loss of data and provides more concurrency.
