    Replication and Rsync in Distributed Environments Overview

    IP/MPLSView includes third-party replication and remote synchronization (rsync) software packages that you can use to back up information for IP/MPLSView data and traffic collection. The replication and rsync utilities are designed to maintain backup servers with up-to-date versions of the files and the database of the primary servers they are backing up, and to replicate data in the event of a failure so the backup server can resume operation.

    The third-party rsync package backs up files from the primary application server to the backup application server and the Mongo database (MongoDB) and MariaDB replication packages keep the backup databases synchronized with the primary database. To synchronize the data, the replication and rsync software compares the data in the backup and primary databases and sends deltas in order to reduce overall data transfer.

    You can use the replication and rsync utilities to back up data in either of the following ways:

    You must install a separate license on the backup IP/MPLSView application server.

    Use the following utilities to administer the distributed servers:

    •—Sets up all IP addresses for all distributed servers.
    •—Stops all distributed servers.
    •—Checks the running status for all distributed servers.
