Redistributing replicas

Often you can redistribute replicas to other servers in the cluster in order to better balance the workload. For example, if one of the servers in the cluster is significantly busier than the other servers, consider moving one or more replicas from the busy server to the less busy servers. You can also create more replicas of a busy database so that the workload is shared by more servers, thus reducing the workload on a busy server.

To move or create replicas in a cluster, you use the same procedures you use to move or create replicas on any Domino® server. While moving or creating the replicas, you can select Show me only cluster members for cluster: cluster name in the Move Database or Create Replica dialog box. This causes the Domino® Administrator or the Web Administrator to display only the names of the servers in the cluster. You can then easily place the replicas on every cluster server you want.
