Configuration for the PowerCenter Integration Service Grid

Configuration for the PowerCenter Integration Service Grid

A grid is an alias assigned to a group of nodes that run sessions and workflows. When you run a workflow on a grid, you improve scalability and performance by distributing Session and Command tasks to service processes running on nodes in the grid. When you run a session on a grid, you improve scalability and performance by distributing session threads to multiple DTM processes running on nodes in the grid.
To run a workflow or session on a grid, you assign resources to nodes, create and configure the grid, and configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid.
To configure a grid, complete the following tasks:
  1. Create a grid and assign nodes to the grid.
  2. Configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid.
  3. Configure the PowerCenter Integration Service processes for the nodes in the grid. If the PowerCenter Integration Service uses operating system profiles, all nodes on the grid must run on UNIX.
  4. Assign resources to nodes. You assign resources to a node to allow the PowerCenter Integration Service to match the resources required to run a task or session thread with the resources available on a node.
After you configure the grid and PowerCenter Integration Service, you configure a workflow to run on the PowerCenter Integration Service assigned to a grid.
