Configure the load balancer, according to the vendor or supplier instructions. Procedures vary, but at a minimum you will identify the vRealize Hyperic server nodes in the cluster and the failover behavior.

Procedure

  1. Identify the vRealize Hyperic server nodes in the cluster.
  2. Configure the load balancer to check the nodeStatus.hqu URL every 10 seconds.

    For example, in a 2-node cluster, if the IP addresses of the nodes are 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2, configure the load balancer to check these URLs every 10 seconds.

    http://hqadmin:hqadmin@10.0.0.1:7080/hqu/health/status/nodeStatus.hqu
    http://hqadmin:hqadmin@10.0.0.2:7080/hqu/health/status/nodeStatus.hqu
  3. Configure the load balancer to direct all traffic to the node whose status is master=true.
