Distribution Methods

The distribution method defines how the DAH distributes actions to its child servers. The behavior of this option depends on whether DAH is in mirror mode or non-mirror mode. In non-mirror mode, the distribution method applies to Distributor VDBs, and to configured mirror groups.

You can configure the distribution method for failover or load balancing:

Distribution Method for ViewServer Child Servers

There is a third distribution method available if you are using DAH to distribute viewing requests to the View server, where document references are used to request documents.

In this case, you can distribute the actions by reference, so that requests for the same document always go to the same View child server, which makes use of View server caching functionality.


If you use this mode, but do not specify a reference in the action, DAH returns an error.
