Configuring an On-Premise Search Service for High-Availability

To create an on-premise HA search service, you will need separate search nodes configured as part of the larger HA deployment.

The following diagram shows the simplest HA configuration for on-premise search. Jive has been deployed in a wide variety of HA configurations. This is only an example of an HA search configuration. Your configuration may vary depending on your specific requirements.

Note: The ingress replicator and search nodes have built-in health checks via host:port/loadbalance/eligible. Therefore, the load balancer can maintain the pool of available nodes via the health check and then round-robin requests across available nodes. In this way, the load balancer can detect any failures of ingress replicator or search nodes.
