Redundant servers

This topic provides information about redundant servers.

The failover function for IFM consists of a primary IFM server, which is a normally running the IFM application, and a secondary IFM server, which monitors the health of the primary IFM server, and can take over processing, if necessary.

You can have only one IFM application installed, but you can define a properties file (standby.prop) to configure the failover function, invoking appropriate behavior as required to monitor and failover, if necessary.
