Operate the deployment environment
Operate the product environment includes starting and stopping servers, managing the availability of the data grid, and recovering from data center failure scenarios.
After you configure the catalog servers and container servers, you can start and stop the servers using various methods. The method that you use to start and stop servers depends on if you are using an embeded topology, a stand-alone topology, or a topology that is running within WAS.
- Start and stop stand-alone servers
You can start and stop stand-alone catalog and container servers with the startOgServer and stopOgServer scripts or the embedded server API.
- Start and stop servers in a WAS environment
Catalog and container servers can automatically start in a WAS or WAS ND environment.
- Use the embedded server API to start and stop servers
With WebSphere eXtreme Scale, you can use a programmatic API for managing the life cycle of embedded servers and containers. You can programmatically configure the server with any of the options that you can also configure with the command line options or file-based server properties. You can configure the embedded server to be a container server, a catalog service, or both.
- Manage ObjectGrid availability
The availability state of an ObjectGrid instance determines which requests can be processed at any particular time. Use the StateManager interface to set and retrieve the state of an ObjectGrid instance.
- Ovveride catalog service quorum
When the data center enters a failure scenario, consider overriding quorum so that container server events are not ignored. Use the xsadmin tool to query about and perform quorum tasks, such as the quorum status and overriding quorum.
- Administer programmatically with Managed Beans (MBeans)
Use several different types of Java™ Management Extensions (JMX) MBeans to administer and monitor deployments. Each MBean refers to a specific entity, such as a map, data grid, server, or service.
