RP/TUX 6.5, TUX 6.51 - OpenVMS gwtdomain connections & round robin routing faulty
Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.5, 6.51
Information in this document applies to any platform
Configuration is Tuxedo 6.5 patch 295 on OpenVMS 7.1 with domains on 2 machines. Main machine has one domain that connects to 20 remote domains. Using scripts to start & stop all 20 in batches, both sides connect fine initially. The modified simpapp servers return a string to the client saying which one serviced the request. Running a simpcl client on the machine with 1 domain, user can see traffic returning from servers in round robin fashion. Stopping remote domains individually while continuting to run the client, shows the stopped servers no longer in the traffic mix. When those domains are restarted, sometimes they re-appear in the mix, sometimes they do not; most times the traffic distribution gets into a very odd state, using a small mix of the remote domains or getting stuck on one.
