IBM Business Monitor - Cluster Startup Order

Aide Memoire

Assuming that you're using the four cluster topology, the startup order is as follows: -
  • Messaging
  • Support
  • AppTarget
  • WebApp
The most crucial things are to: -

(a) Ensure that Messaging ( SI Bus / JMS ) is up before starting the AppTarget
(b) Ensure that Support, which hosts the Cognos BI application, is ALSO up before starting AppTarget

The reason for this is that the Monitor Models run on the AppTarget, and will "talk" back to the SI Bus(es) and also to Cognos.

BusinessSpace typically runs in the WebApp cluster, hence why it's the last to be started.

Nice :-)
