How Load Splitter Configuration Works

Using load splitter configuration, you can run multiple application servers concurrently within the Siebel Enterprise as shown in Figure 35. This behavior can enhance assignment throughput by reducing the amount of time required to complete assignment requests.

Figure 35 shows that when a batch request is submitted, the Load Splitter divides the objects into multiple assignment requests across multiple machines. Assignment Manager then executes according to the predefined load splitter configurations and outputs to the database server.

Load splitter configuration is especially useful for batch assignment or when you need to reassign large amounts of data, launch new product lines, change territory coverage or routing definitions, and so on. This feature is a great tool for processing major reassignments because load splitter configuration can automatically determine the load and share it evenly across multiple servers.

Load splitter configuration works in two modes—write mode and read mode—depending on where it finds the object row IDs to process. For more information about these modes, see Distribute Data Method.

NOTE:  You can use Load Splitter Configuration in both Production and Reporting modes.
