Overview

This resource allows you to manage a dynamic cluster in an WebLogic domain.

Here is an example on how you should use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster{'DynamicCluster':
  ensure                 => 'present',
  calculated_listen_port => '0',  # '0' or '1'
  maximum_server_count   => '2',
  nodemanager_match      => 'Node1,Node2',
  server_name_prefix     => 'DynCluster-',
  server_template_name   => 'ServerTemplateWeb',
}

In this example you are managing a dynamic cluster in the default domain. When you want to manage a dynamic cluster in a specific domain, you can use:

wls_dynamic_cluster{'my_domain/DynamicCluster':
  ensure                 => 'present',
  calculated_listen_port => '0',  # '0' or '1'
  maximum_server_count   => '2',
  nodemanager_match      => 'Node1,Node2',
  server_name_prefix     => 'DynCluster-',
  server_template_name   => 'ServerTemplateWeb',
}

Check the WebLogic documentation for more information about configuring and managing datasources.

calculated_listen_port

Set managed server ports is auto calculated

Valid values are absent, 0, 1. Back to overview of wls_dynamic_cluster

calculated_listen_ports

Specifies whether listen ports are calculated.

An example on how to use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster {a_wls_dynamic_cluster :
   ...
   calculated_listen_ports => '1'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

wls_setting{'domain':
   ...
  extra_properties => ['wls_dynamic_cluster:calculated_listen_ports']
   ...
}

calculated_machine_names

The CalculatedMachineNames attribute controls how server instances in a dynamic cluster are assigned to a machine. If the attribute is not set, then the dynamic servers will not be assigned to a machine. If the attribute is set, then the MachineNameMatchExpression attribute is used to select the set of machines to use for the dynamic servers.

An example on how to use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster {a_wls_dynamic_cluster :
   ...
   calculated_machine_names => '1'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

wls_setting{'domain':
   ...
  extra_properties => ['wls_dynamic_cluster:calculated_machine_names']
   ...
}

cluster_name

The cluster name

Back to overview of wls_dynamic_cluster

domain

With this parameter, you identify the domain, where your objects is in.

The domain name is part of the full qualified name of any WebLogic object on a system. Let’s say we want to describe a WebLogic server. The full qualified name is:

wls_server{'domain_name/server_name':
  ensure => present,
  ...
}

When you don’t specify a domain name, Puppet will use default as domain name. For every domain you want to manage, you’ll have to put a wls_settings in your manifest.

dynamic_cluster_cooloff_period_seconds

Get the cool-off period (in seconds) used by the Elasticity Framework while performing scale up or scale down operations. If a scale up or scale down operation was performed, subsequent requests for scale up or down operations will be ignored by the Elasticity Framework during this period.

An example on how to use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster {a_wls_dynamic_cluster :
   ...
   dynamic_cluster_cooloff_period_seconds => '900'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

dynamic_cluster_shutdown_timeout_seconds

Get the timeout period (in seconds) used by the Elasticity Framework while gracefully shutting down a server. If the server does not shut down before the specified timeout period, the server will be forcibly shut down. With a negative time value, no timeout will be applied.

An example on how to use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster {a_wls_dynamic_cluster :
   ...
   dynamic_cluster_shutdown_timeout_seconds => 'a_value'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

An example on how to use this:

wls_dynamic_cluster {a_wls_dynamic_cluster :
   ...
   dynamic_cluster_size => 'a_value'

machine_name_match_expression

The expression is used when determining machines to use for server assignments. If null, then all machines in the domain are used.

The expression is a comma separated set of values that specify the machines to match. Each value will either match a machine name exactly or if specified with a trailing ‘*’ suffix, the value will match multiple machine names.
