We need to proceed many renditions and guarantee real high availability. We'd like to set up Meridian to use a Rendering Cluster, meaning more than one render server is working at a time. Would it be possible to get it?
Is the issue high availability or high throughput?
We consider both missing features. Meridian seems to capable to continue converting to PDF in the event of failure of Rendering Server. And also, whenever there is a high rendering demand of large drawing, there is no option to increase throughput by adding concurrent servers.
Mistake "Meridian seems NOT capable"
Hi Francesc Bastida, have you looked at the Enterprise Server Cluster and creating publishing jobs dedicated to each Enterprise Server in the cluster?
I find that dedicating publishing jobs to a specific Enterprise Server in the cluster works well but only when the publishing load is split evenly between the publishing jobs. Enterprise Server Clustering would really benefit from some kind of internal load balancing functionality, where the publish queue would be intelligently sent to different publishing jobs depending on load of each publishing job.
Hi Aaron Swain
My little knowledge about this topic is that each Vault's configuration use only one Rendition JOB. And each Rendition Job only use one server of the Enterprise Cluster (only one) . Hence only one server will be handling documents to PDF (Rendition Job).
Your idea seems feasible, maybe I missing something to fully understand. What do you actually mean with Several publishing jobs...?
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
