webMethods IS Clustering

Hi Gurus,

My Customer would like to do Integration Server clustering. 2 IS instance and 1 Broker Instance and planning to use webMethods Load Balancing. Would like to know the PROS and CONS of using WM LB?.

Server :

Server A - WM IS1
Server B - WM IS2
Server C - WM BROKER


There is one major con against using the load balancing facility within IS–it has been deprecated. There have been several threads discussing high-availability options for IS. A search for “load balancing” will turn up many threads for you. This thread may be of particular interest.
