Fault Tolerance And Backup Nodes
All Argent products are designed for the real world, where not everything goes according to plan all the time…
You can define Backup Nodes within Configuration Options to ensure continuity when the primary server running the Argent Scheduler fails.
On the Argent Queue Engine side, you can install separate instances of the Argent Queue Engine on different servers, and then have a list of Argent Queue Engines where the jobs can run – if one Argent Queue Engine server is offline, then the next Argent Queue Engine will be used.
Under the Servers tab, you can choose First Available Server. This way, if the first Argent Queue Engine server fails, jobs will still run, and run on schedule.
