WebSphere Portal v6 cluster startup issue – ideas?

Posted by Vivek Agarwal on May 22, 2007

We are experiencing a weird issue in our staging environment with a WebSphere Portal v6.0.1 horizontal cluster. While the main node in the cluster starts up in approximately 5 minutes of CPU time, the secondary nodes take 20+ minutes of CPU time. There are no exceptions in the log files on the secondary nodes that would reasonably explain the additional CPU time during startup. Also once portal starts up, we have not noticed any significant difference in performance between the cluster nodes. We had filed a PMR with IBM on this issue and they agree with us that this is not normal behavior. However, so far they have been less than helpful – just making us spin cycles on log/trace file collection. I am curious if other folks have experienced similar issues on a WP6 cluster?

  1. […] issues that we are running into with the secondary node in a WebSphere Portal v6 cluster. I had written sometime back about a startup performance issue on a secondary node in a cluster – at the time, we were not seeing any performance issues […]
