This guide describes how to perform the most common VMware vFabric tc Server administration tasks:
Configuring and Monitoring tc Runtime Using vFabric Hyperic™. Use the vFabric Hyperic user interface to update the configuration of a tc Runtime instance and to monitor its health and performance.
Configuring a tc Runtime Instance
Manually. Configure a single tc Runtime instance by manually
updating its configuration files, such as
Using the tc Server Command Line
Interface. Use the
interface and a command script to manage and configure a tc Runtime
instance or group.
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.
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 vFabric tc Server.
The tc Server runtime component, tc Runtime, is a servlet container, based on Apache Tomcat, that is hardened for enterprise use, coupled with key operational capabilities and advanced diagnostics, and backed by mission-critical support.
