    putting an application server offline

    Alessandro Iacopetti

      we are beginning to use multiple application server for load balancing because of increased load.

      we are now facing the following problem:

      when we need to do some maintenance on an application server, we need to put it offline without cancelling the jobs it's running.

      we need to put it in a state where it finishes its current jobs and accept no more jobs until it's free.

      by comparison, on a windows load balancing cluster, the corresponding command is

      wlbs drainstop

      which drains active connections to other servers in the cluser, until the node itself is completely connections-free and the admin can reboot it or do some maintenance without disrupting the service.

      is there some kind of facility in a bladelogic application server cluster?
