Load balanced subscription and forwarder state synchronization


Load balanced subscription and forwarder state synchronization

Martin

Hello,

When using Supercharger for balancing the load among multiple collectors, what happens to the forwarder-related state records (channel record IDs and heartbeat information) in the collectors' registry? Are they synchronized within the pool of collectors?

If not, in my understanding rebalancing to a collector with an outdated record for a newly assigned forwarder will result in sending old logs again, leading to duplicates in the infrastructure.

Thanks in advance for giving some insight.

Best regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

It is inevitable to have some duplicate logs for a while when reassigning forwarders. There is no way around that.

However, please not that Supercharger does not reassign forwarders in a load balanced subscription, except in very extraordinary circumstances.
