In the QlikView Web Servers folder, the QlikView Web Server(s) (QVWS) can be viewed and edited. A QlikView Publisher (QVP) installation can contain many QVWSs located on different machines. Hence, these components can also be added and deleted. A QVWS handles the following tasks:
- Hosting of the QlikView AccessPoint
- Load balancing of the QlikView Server (QVS)
- Keeping track of open sessions for the AJAX clients
- Handling of authentication (optional)
- Handling of general web content (optional)
A QVWS can either be installed as a windows service or to run under a Microsoft IIS; in the latter case, the hosting of web content is not relevant.
