Load Control Action

Load Control Action

The Load Control action sets the priority levels for primary and secondary Dynamic Data Masking Servers when you configure high availability for DB2.
You can configure the priority levels of two or more Dynamic Data Masking Servers in the Load Control action. The value of the Priority property corresponds to the frequency that the client sends the request through the Dynamic Data Masking Server. For example, if you have the priority of DDMServer1 set to one and the priority of DDMServer2 set to 19, DDMServer1 receives 5 percent of the requests from the client and DDMServer2 receives 95 percent of the requests.
Enter zero (0) as the priority level of a server to indicate that requests must only go through the server if no other server available. For example, if you have the priority of DDMServer1 set to zero and the priority of DDMServer2 set to one, DDMServer2 receives 100 percent of the requests from the client unless DDMServer2 is unavailable.
Configure the following properties for the Load Control action:
Host
The host names of the Dynamic Data Masking Servers.
Port
The listener port numbers of the Dynamic Data Masking Servers.
Priority
The priority level of the Dynamic Data Masking Servers.
The following image shows the Load Control action configured for a primary Dynamic Data Masking Server and a failover Dynamic Data Masking Server:
The rule uses the All Incoming Connections matcher, the Load Control rule action, and the Stop if Applied processing action.
