Using PeopleSoft Interaction Hub and Content Providers

Typically, PeopleTools recommends that the portal and content sites run in separate PeopleSoft Internet Architecture domains. If these sites are running in the same PeopleSoft Internet Architecture domain (as in having multiple sites within the same domain, with one site for the portal and the other sites for content), then there is no need to load-balance requests separately to the content sites, because the requests will be routed to the same JVM's.

When the portal and content sites run in the same PeopleSoft domain as multiple sites, they share the same session because the web application is the same for all sites. PeopleTools does not recommend configuring portal and content sites in the same PeopleSoft domain for performance and reliability reasons.

So assuming that portal and content sites are running in separate PeopleSoft domains, they will have separate ports and, usually, separate hosts. In this case, if portal and content sites are using the same physical load balancer, the routing rules will have to be set up for these sites separately.
