HA manager overview

For HTTP and enterprise bean partitioning, the high availability manager (HA manager) generally manages one or more highly available groups, specifically for the partitioning facility (WPF). This correlates partitions to cluster members. The HA manager manages highly available groups of application servers and partitions. As cluster members are stopped, started, or fail, the HA manager will monitor the current state and, based upon a given set of policy attributes, adjust the state of the partitions as required. Consequently, the HA manager provides the fundamental functionality to manage partitions. The HA manager allows the creation of policies that allow the programmer and administrator to replace or augment the defaults provided. The HA manager is a collection of technologies to manage distributed resources. The core group, coordinator, and policy functions enable the key functions the HA manager service provides.
