Third-Party HTTP Load Balancer Rules

The variables in the following rules have the following meaning:

  • enterprise. The Siebel Enterprise Server name.
  • AOM. The Application Object Manager name.
  • server. The Siebel Server name. You can change this to the TCP/IP address of the Siebel Server, if desired.
  • SCBPort. The port assigned to the Siebel Connection Broker on the Siebel Server.
  • sid. The server ID of the Siebel Server. This is a unique number assigned to each Siebel Server during installation.
Component Rules

These rules are URLs for initial connection requests. The syntax of a component rule is as follows:


When the file is generated, a component rule is created for every enabled AOM found on every running Siebel Server.

Server Rules

These rules are URLs for server reconnection requests. The syntax of a server rule is as follows:


The first asterisk in the syntax is a wildcard for the AOM. The exclamation point and dot-asterisk (.*) are wildcards that parse the server name to extract the server ID.

Not all load balancers can handle a wildcard character (*) in the middle of the URL. In these cases, create URLs with the following format:


Repeat this mapping for each combination of the AOM and Siebel Server ID.

Round-Robin Rules

These rules are URLs for server retry requests. The syntax for a round-robin rule is as follows:


This syntax is the same as that of component rules, except that RR is appended to the URL. This is to alert the load balancer to apply a round-robin rule that routes this request to a different Siebel Server.
