Analytics for WebCenter and Spaces Does Not Support Clustered Collectors
Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016
Applies to:Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 184.108.40.206.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0) document, Section 13.4 Configuring Analytics Collector Settings, explains how to configure the Analytics Collector for clustering. Unfortunately, you cannot currently cluster the Analytics collector instances. You can use Analytics collectors to gather event data from all WebCenter Portal/Spaces instances in a cluster, but each instance can only communicate to one dedicated Analytics collector instance on the same machine. All of these Analytics collectors write events from all Portal/Spaces instances to the same database so that all of the data is gathered there. So while Analytics collectors themselves cannot be clustered for load balancing and failover, they can work with an HA, clustered WebCenter Portal environment.
The product release notes explain this detail:
18.104.22.168 Clarification of the Procedure for Configuring the Analytics Collectors:
The Oracle Fusion Middleware Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle WebCenter 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) Part Number E12037-05 also mentions this:
6.16 Configuring the Analytics Collectors:
Clustered Analytics Collectors are not supported for collecting WebCenter events."
