    Setting up multiple servers is not required for evaluation purposes.

    However, if you are interested in installing and configuring PrizmDoc Server on multiple servers, this topic provides an overview with links to specific how-to instructions.

    Setup Options

    PrizmDoc Server default installation and configuration is designed with the intent to handle all requests and processing on a single server; however, running a single server will limit the bandwidth available for fulfilling requests. To address that problem, PrizmDoc Server can be installed on multiple servers and configured to route requests among them.

    A cluster installation follows the same process as a single-server installation with some additional configuration steps once installation and licensing have been completed.

    For an overview of how Cluster Mode works and steps to configure your server for cluster use, please see our Cluster Mode introduction. If you’re an existing customer and already familiar with Cluster Mode, you can find information on our Cluster Management API here.

    With a cluster configuration, there are special considerations for optimizing PrizmDoc Server’s performance by configuring viewing sessions to use cached content. To learn more about relying on PrizmDoc Server’s caching and to configure its use, see our topic on Optimizing Cache Performance.

    Some of the APIs also require special consideration when used with Cluster Mode. In Cluster Mode, each server handles a request from start to finish. For that reason, some requests (for example Work File, Markup Burner, and Content Conversion requests) will require an Affinity Token. For more information on Affinity Tokens, and the steps required to use those APIs in Cluster Mode, please see our Affinity Tokens & Cluster Mode topic.
