    Configuring the SAE Community Manager

    Use the following configuration statements to configure the SAE community manager that manages PCMM device communities:

    shared sae configuration external-interface-features name CommunityManager {keepalive-interval keepalive-interval ;
    threads threads ;
    acquire-timeout acquire-timeout ;
    blackout-time blackout-time ;
    }

    To configure the community manager:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for the community manager. In this sample procedure, west_region is the name of the SAE group, and sae_mgr is the name of the community manager.
      user@host# edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager
    2. Specify the interval between keepalive messages sent from the active SAE to the passive members of the community.
      [edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set keepalive-interval keepalive-interval
    3. Specify the number of threads that are allocated to manage the community. You generally do not need to change this value.
      [edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set threads threads
    4. Specify the amount of time an SAE waits for a remote member of the community when it is acquiring a distributed lock. You generally do not need to change this value.
      [edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set acquire-timeout acquire-timeout
    5. Specify the amount of time that an active SAE must wait after it shuts down before it can try to become the active SAE of the community again.
      [edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set blackout-time blackout-time
    6. (Optional) Verify the configuration of the SAE community manager.
      [edit shared sae group west-region configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] 
      user@host# show 
      CommunityManager {
       keepalive-interval 30;
        threads 5;
        acquire-timeout 15;
        blackout-time 30;
      }
