A service cluster is a collection of nodes. Gathering the nodes into a cluster enables central configuration.
On a multi-node site, the service cluster stores configurations, such as persistence type, database connection, and static content folder, for all nodes. All nodes are linked to the service cluster so that the settings can be unified.
Do the following:
Select Service cluster on the QMC start page or from the StartS drop-down menu to display the service cluster page.
|Service cluster name.|
The root folder path will, by default, be used for the root subfolders, unless a different path is explicitly stated. If the root folder has the path //myhost/share, the default root subfolder path will be //myhost/share/<root subfolder>.
|Apps||Root subfolder to which all nodes connect to retrieve apps.|
|Static content root folder||Root subfolder that contains static content, such as images.|
|Connector 32 root folder||Root subfolder for 32-bit Qv connectors. (Reserved for future use.)|
|Connector 64 root folder||Root subfolder for 64-bit Qv connectors. (Reserved for future use.)|
|Archived logs root folder||Root subfolder, one for each host.|
|Failover timeout (minutes)||Amount of time that the central node can be offline before a failover occurs. Default value: 10 minutes. This value is editable.|
