Replicator entry settings

Use this page to view and configure a replicator entry (or replicator). Replicators are used with multi-broker replication domains.

To view this administrative console page, click Environment > Replication domains > replication_domain_name > Replicator entries > replicator_entry_name.

Replicators communicate using Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Therefore, allocate an IP address and ports for replicators. Use this page to name a replicator and then to allocate an IP address and two ports (replicator and client ports) for the replicator.

 

Configuration tab

Replicator name

Specifies a name for the replicator entry.

Server

Specifies the server for which you are defining a replicator. You can view the names of servers that do not already have replicators. You can create a maximum of one replicator on any application server.

Replicator and client host name

Specifies the IP address, domain name service (DNS) host name with domain name suffix, or just the DNS host name, used by a client to request a Web application resource (such as a servlet, JavaServer Pages (JSP) file, or HTML page).

A replicator port and client port share the same host name.

Replicator Port

Specifies the port for which the replicator is configured to accept messages from other replicators. The port value is used in conjunction with the host name.

The replicator port enables communication among replicators. It provides replicator port to replicator communication. The usual value specified is 7874.

Client Port

Specifies the port for which the Web server is configured to accept client requests. The port value is used in conjunction with the host name.

The client port enables communication between an application server process and a replicator. It provides client port to application server communication. The usual value specified is 7873.
