PeopleSoft on Client/Server and Database Issues


To address questions for a TEC customer, we interviewed PeopleSoft's Michael Daniels. The conversation covered issues in the areas of client/server architecture and database management as they relate to the PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning suite of products.

server processor  The client picks a server at random. If the server it picks is unavailable, the client attempts to connect to a different one. PeopleSoft has found that this random approach is also effective for load balancing. This method of configuration would also make the process automatic once the configuration file has been built on the client. TEC Analysis: This approach should be effective for both load balancing and fault tolerance. It is significantly different than the approach taken by SAP, where a central Read More
