How to add a secondary compute server and setup the load balancing using the cost alogorithm?
we already have SAS installed on a three tier architecture (Metadata, compute and mid tier) and would like to add a secondary compute server and setup the load balancing.
I found an article which says that I need to install SAS in INSTALL ONLY mode on the second compute server and then configure object spawner and then configure in Management console for the load balancing. if we do this, how will the mid tier server know about the second compute server. Any thoughts?
Please provide the link to the article you are referring to.
Also, what do you want to achieve by setting up a second Compute?
And what Load Balancing are we talking about, Stored Process Server?
Another instance of SAS requires a certain license, have someone at SAS (technical architect or similar) help you architect this set up?
Below is the link, I was referring to
we would like to distribute the load between two compute servers (workspace)
I just want to understand the process of setting up this. we will work on having a license if we want to add another instance of compute tier,
The best way to add a second compute server would be to update your existing SAS design, with a new plan XML file and do a new planned deployment. This will allow you to keep your existing deployment intact and your additional server setup consistent with whats there already.
The SAS Users Group for Administrators (SUGA) is open to all SAS administrators and architects who install, update, manage or maintain a SAS deployment.
