Step 2. Create a Grid

Step 2. Create a Grid

To create a grid, create the grid object and assign nodes to the grid. You can assign a node to one grid when the Data Integration Service is configured to run jobs in separate remote processes.
When a Data Integration Service grid runs mappings, profiles, and workflows in separate remote processes, the grid can include the following nodes:
  • Any number of nodes with the service role only.
  • Any number of nodes with the compute role only.
  • At least one node with both the service and compute roles to run previews and to run ad hoc jobs, with the exception of profiles.
If you associate a Content Management Service with the Data Integration Service to run mappings that read reference data, each node in the grid must have both the service and compute roles.
