Grid Connectivity and Recovery

Grid Connectivity and Recovery

When you run a workflow or session on a grid, service processes and DTM processes run on different nodes. Network failures can cause connectivity loss between processes running on separate nodes. Services may shut down unexpectedly, or you may disable the Integration Service or service processes while a workflow or session is running. The Integration Service failover and recovery behavior in these situations depends on the service process that is disabled, shuts down, or loses connectivity. Recovery behavior also depends on the following factors:
  • High availability option
    . When you have high availability, workflows fail over to another node if the node or service shuts down. If you do not have high availability, you can manually restart a workflow on another node to recover it.
  • Recovery strategy
    . You can configure a workflow to suspend on error. You configure a recovery strategy for tasks within the workflow. When a workflow suspends, the recovery behavior depends on the recovery strategy you configure for each task in the workflow.
  • Shutdown mode
    . When you disable an Integration Service or service process, you can specify that the service completes, aborts, or stops processes running on the service. Behavior differs when you disable the Integration Service or you disable a service process. Behavior also differs when you disable a master service process or a worker service process. The Integration Service or service process may also shut down unexpectedly. In this case, the failover and recovery behavior depend on which service process shuts down and the configured recovery strategy.
  • Running mode
    . If the workflow runs on a grid, the Integration Service can recover workflows and tasks on another node. If a session runs on a grid, you cannot configure a resume recovery strategy.
  • Operating mode.
    If the Integration Service runs in safe mode, recovery is disabled for sessions and workflows.
You cannot configure an Integration Service to fail over in safe mode if it runs on a grid.
