About Multiple Server configuration and organization

What is "external management techniques",for example?
Does it mean we must use external software?
--Morikzm 23:41, 11 January 2010 (CST)

For configuration distribution, yes, you must use techniques outside of Resin, such as the "file system synchronization or a networked file system," mentioned. Emil 11:52, 19 January 2010 (CST)

Detail information about Resin's Watchdog

Do you have any detail information/pages about Resin's Watchdog?
What is the advantage of Watchdog comparing with WLS administration console? Does Watchdog make startup scripts automatically?
--Morikzm 23:51, 11 January 2010 (CST)

The Watchdog does not perform functions at all similar to the WLS administration console. It merely starts, stops, restarts, and monitors Resin. It does not generate start up scripts. Start up scripts should invoke the Watchdog.

Distributed Deployment of Resin 4.0

Verify applications in the same environment as live applications before going live

Do you talk about "staging" of application sever by above sentence?

--Morikzm 00:03, 12 January 2010 (CST)

Yes, this sentence refers to staging.

Resin's log files and rotation

Can users integrate each server's log files in case of multiple server management, or do they need any management software for such log watching?
And in configure example section,
All levels of log messages are written to the file from all sources.

Does it mean all applications (sources) can manage/use all levels of log massages?

--Morikzm 00:23, 12 January 2010 (CST)

Resin can write logs to log files or to syslog. If you have multiple servers, you may either configure syslog, write logs to a shared file system, or collect the logs from the servers with some other tool.

All applications may use the java.util.logging facilities, which Resin can output to its log files, if so configured.

Integration with other open source softwares

On Caucho blog, some advantages using open source software(s) like Nagios and eclipse are pointed out.

We think these are important point. Especially integration with Nagios is remarkable because all we know this famous management tool and this also highlights Java-PHP integration, which is another Resin's advantage.

If we can use such softwares officially, please add them into this wiki page.

--Morikzm 02:26, 12 January 2010 (CST)

Nagios is not officially supported, but Eclipse is.

Advantages of file system-based approach

What is the advantage of file system-based approach? What merits can we get using simple file system approach?

We think belows are some of them;

  • Enabling to integrate other OSS management tools
  • Comprehensibility of configuration especially for beginners as you wrote
  • Extensibility/ Generalization of configuration, which can be archived by using regular expression for example

Are they true?

--Morikzm 02:35, 14 January 2010 (CST)

These are true, except for the last one, which is unrelated to file system deployment:

  • Extensibility/ Generalization of configuration, which can be archived by using regular expression for example
