Configuring bi-directional replication

Configuring bi-directional replication

Replication is unidirectional from one cluster to another. To configure bidirectional replication between two clusters, provide settings for two separate replication streams. One stream replicates changes from Cluster A to Cluster B, another stream replicates changes from Cluster B to Cluster A.

Note: You do not need identical topologies for both clusters. You can have a different number of nodes in each cluster, RAM configuration, and persistence configuration.

To configure a bi-directional replication:

  1. Create a replication from Cluster A to Cluster B on Cluster A.
  2. Create a replication from Cluster B to Cluster A on Cluster B.
  3. Configure the number of parallel replicators that run per node. The default number of parallel, active streams per node is 32 and is adjustable.
