Goal

Customer wants to know what are the best practices defining the remote-addresses/name-service-addresses for a participant in the participants of the federation-config of the operation override file the federation clusters.

Can user add FQDN/load balancer URL while defining federation topology inside override file? Normally we add IP addresses of the participants while defining the topology. Can we add load balancer FQDN inside the participant tag? Does it affect the speed of the federation if we add all IPs of the participating cluster inside the Override file? For example, if we have two clusters say A and B and each cluster containing 4 machines then should we add all machines IPs into participants inside the override file to achieve better federation speed? How does the Federation between clusters occur when we provide only one IP address Vs multiple IP addresses? Does it connect only to that IP address mentioned in the file? If for some reason, a few nodes or a server went down in the cluster receiving federated data. What would happen? If we include more than one IP address in the federation config, and one of them is down. Would federation fail? Alternatively, would it proceed with the other IP address that is active?
