SSR Administration Overview
Administering the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier’s Session State Register module requires several unique administration tasks that use tools (shell commands and scripts) not available on standalone SBR Carrier servers. Both the tasks and tools tend to break down into these functional areas:
Cluster and node startup and shutdown
Steel-Belted Radius Carrier node administration
Management node administration
Data node administration
Startup and shut down commands must be executed by root on each node.
Administration scripts usually affect the SSR database or the SBR Carrier node interaction with the database. They are executed by hadm on any of a cluster’s management nodes.
