Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.


Verification process


About this taskAfter the sample partitioning facility application has been installed in the cluster and the cluster started, verify that the partitions are active. The following outlines the verification process.

To verify that the partitions have started, in a command window type:

cd
<WAS_HOME>\bin
wpfadmin listActive

The result should be similar to:

WASX7209I: Connected to process "Deployment Manager" on node CellManager 
using SOAP connector;  The type of process is: DeploymentManager
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000010: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_3
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000009: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_1
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000008: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_3
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000007: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_1
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000006: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_1
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000005: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_1
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000004: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_3
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000003: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_3
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000002: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_3
WPFC0050I: Application WPFKeyBasedPartitionSample, Partition PK000001: 
Server Cell\NodeA\cluster_member_1

This indicates that the application started and the partitions (10 by default) were activated correctly. The application server instance a particular partition key starts on, without providing a specific policy, depends upon which server reaches a point where it is registered in the HA manager quorum. Whichever servers are in the view at the time quorum is detected will have activated partitions. Thus, the partitions are not guaranteed to start in a given location until the programmers or administrators provide additional configuration effort.

An example of specifying a policy is provided later in this introduction. Also, through this demonstration, each time the cluster is started, the partition specific member locations at start may vary from these instructions.
