Overview of tc Server Administration
This guide describes how to perform the most common Pivotal tc Server administration tasks:
- Configuring a tc Runtime Instance Manually. Configure a single tc Runtime instance by manually updating its configuration files, such as
- Creating and Managing tc Server Templates. Create customized templates to be used alongside the built-in templates. Use these template to customize configurations of your instances.
- Managing Planned and Unplanned Outages. Learn how to handle planned and unplanned outages.
- Enabling Clustering for High Availability. Create a cluster of tc Runtime instances so as to enable session replication, cluster-wide deployment, and context replication. This section also describes how to enable load balancing.
- Monitoring tc Runtime Instance Using VMware Hyperic. Use the Pivotal tc Server Hyperic Plugin to monitor your instances.
In procedures that describe how to configure individual tc Runtime instances, it is assumed that you already have created at least one instance and that you now want to change the default configuration to take advantage of tc Server features as well as standard Apache Tomcat features. If you have not created a tc Runtime instance, see “Creating a New tc Runtime Instance” in Getting Started with Pivotal tc Server.
