Configuring Custom Distribution Algorithm

Custom distribution algorithm can be configured for all types of data views, that is, ldap-data-view, jdbc-data-view, ldif-data-view, and join-data-view. In the following procedure the algorithm is set only for ldap-data-view.

ProcedureTo Configure Custom Distribution Algorithm

  1. Set the extension-jar-file-url property to contain the path of the Java Archive (JAR) file containing your distribution algorithm class.

    $ dpconf set-server-prop -h host -p port extension-jar-file-url:jar file path

    The jar file path can be replaced with a valid JAR file path such as file:/expt/dps/custom_plugin/myjar.jar.

  2. Before you configure custom-distribution-algorithm, set distribution-algorithm to none.

    $ dpconf set-ldap-data-view-prop view name distribution-algorithm:none
  3. Set the custom-distribution-algorithm property to your custom distribution algorithm class.

    $ dpconf set-ldap-data-view-prop view name \
