How to start/shutdown application server processes dynamically.

Issue:
How to start/shutdown application server processes dynamically. This could be helpful when trying to handle a temporary increase/decrease in load on the system.

Solution:
Server processes are started using the “boot” command available in 'tmadmin'. (In psadmin go to Application Server, Administer Domain, select domain), Tuxedo command line tmadmin ). Each Tuxedo server process has a server ID. The first step is determining the ID of the process you are trying to boot up. If you already have two PSQRYSRV processes booted and wish to start a third, determining the ID is simple, just type in “psr” at the 'tmadmin' command prompt. This is the same as “Server Status” done through the psadmin menu. Example:

The ID numbers for a particular type of server processes are allocated sequentially. so if you know you have configured a maximum of 4 PSQRYSRV processes while configuring the domain, 71, 72, and 73 are available and can be started up.

To start up a second PSQRYSRV process just type in “boot -i <ID>”. Example:

>boot -i 71

INFO: Serial #: 1000000044, Expiration NONE, Maxusers 1000000

The new processes will stay up till you bring down the Domain, but won't start up automatically the next time you boot the Domain. To make the changes permanent you will have to Reconfigure the domain using 'psadmin' to change the Min and Max Instances parameters. You can start up processes up to the Max Instances defined for that particular server process type in the Domain configuration ( psappsrv.cfg )

[PSQRYSRV]
;=========================================================================
; Settings for PSQRYSRV
;=========================================================================

;-------------------------------------------------------------------------
; UBBGEN settings
Min Instances=2
Max Instances=4        <-------- Limiting number
Service Timeout=300  

In this example you can only start up 4 PSQRYSRV processes using the procedure above.

Shutting down Application Server processes
To shut down a server process, use the tmadmin “shutdown” command along with the server process ID. Example:

> shutdown -i 71

Shutting down server processes ...

        Server Id = 71 Group Id = APPSRV Machine = SITE1:       shutdown succeeded
