Hi All, I am new to QlikView. I am trying search the following... did not find much details...
QlikView Server has following components:
1. QlikView Server
2. Reload/Distribution Engine
3. Management Console
4. Web server
I Have 2 Physical Servers load with memory. 1 Server License, 1 Publisher Licence. Bunch of Name CALS and Bunch of Doc CALS.
I want the developers access to 1 Server and Production to access 1 Server.
QlikView Server QlikView Web portal (IIS)
Reload/Distribution Engine Developed Solutions (Application)
Is this the best way to setup the Server environment? If not what is the best way to set it up? and why?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would split as follows :
Production Server: All the Live Production items
QlikView Web portal (IIS)
Developed Solutions (Application)
Development Server Purely Dev stuff
RDP configured for the Developers to connect in via an RDP client
Best Regards, Bill
I would agree with Bill. Unless you have a clustered license to distribute from different server, I would recommend having Publisher on the same machine. You can save time while distributing across network using UNC. There will be latency in distribution while doing it across the network.
Keep your developers away from any production service. A single developer testing cartesian product-technology may knock down your complete QlikView set-up (because in your original architecture QVS is running on the same machine)
I did this more than once, and it was ... fun...
I absolutely agree with your comment Keep your developers away from any production service. A single developer testing cartesian product-technology....................
I have not, whilst developing, done an accidental dodgy cartesian join yet this year.... but it is only 3rd Jan and I am sure I will do one before the end of the year.
On our Dev Server I have an alert script [vbs] that sends a warning email if more than 80% of the RAM is used, and every time I get the email somebody has done an accidental dodgy cartesian join.
Best Regards, Bill
