General Properties

General Properties

The amount of system resources that the PowerCenter Integration Services uses depends on how you set up the PowerCenter Integration Service. You can configure a PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid or on nodes. You can view the system resource usage of the PowerCenter Integration Service using the PowerCenter Workflow Monitor.
When you use a grid, the PowerCenter Integration Service distributes workflow tasks and session threads across multiple nodes. You can increase performance when you run sessions and workflows on a grid. If you choose to run the PowerCenter Integration Service on a grid, select the grid. You must have the server grid option to run the PowerCenter Integration Service on a grid. You must create the grid before you can select the grid.
If you configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on nodes, choose one or more PowerCenter Integration Service process nodes. If you have only one node and it becomes unavailable, the domain cannot accept service requests. With the high availability option, you can run the PowerCenter Integration Service on multiple nodes. To run the service on multiple nodes, choose the primary and backup nodes.
