Replicator entry settings
View and configure a replicator entry, or replicator. Replicators are used with multi-broker replication domains.
From the admin console, click Environment > Replication domains > replication_domain_name > Replicator entries > replicator_entry_name.
Replicators communicate using Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Therefore, we must 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.
Name for the replicator entry.
Server for which we are defining a replicator. We can view the names of servers that do not already have replicators. We can create a maximum of one replicator on any application server.
Replicator and client host name
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, JSP file, or HTML page).
A replicator port and client port share the same host name.
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.
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.
