QlikView Web Servers

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.

Note: If using a Microsoft IIS web server instead of the QVWS, the QVWS resource should still have the Running status and the QVWS service under the Windows services applet should not be running or installed.
