Configuring High Availability Deployments
You can configure high availability and fault tolerance into the Netsweeper deployment on your network using a third-party load balancer, port-mirroring, port-spanning, tee-based packet duplication, policy-based routing, and other solutions.
Our Configuring Netsweeper High-Availability Deployments document covers this topic in greater depth.
You may also want to consider the Netsweeper Web Cluster. This cluster is configured as an active/passive cluster with automatic failover and provides a central point of policy configuration for a Netsweeper platform.
A Netsweeper Web Cluster is two connected computers working together and seen as a single system. It creates redundant groups or clusters to provide continuous service and failover capabilities to utilize a minimum of downtime. Netsweeper's clusters use a heartbeat private network connection to monitor the health and status of either node.
For more information on the High-Availability Web Cluster please see our documentation on Web Cluster Configuration .
