The fault-tolerant switch manager - impact on performance

This section describes the impact that the enablement of the fault-tolerant switch manager feature has on the performance of the general architecture and the individual system. The fault-tolerant switch manager is enabled by setting the enSwfaultTol global option to yes. When it is set, the master domain manager distributes messages to all fault-tolerant agents with FullStatus set to yes. This option has not dynamic capabilities and is not designed to work with broker agents.

Enabling this option impacts the following:
  • Network traffic
  • Disk space
Note: The fault-tolerant switch manager facility is only available if all of the workstations in the domain are at version 8.2, fix pack level 4, or higher.
