In 'production' I would advise you to run the administration server on another box. This for performance reasons, but also for security reasons.
The general rules in production are:
- NEVER, NEVER, NEVER install the application on the adminserver.
- try to run the adminserver from another box, which should not be high available.
If the adminserver needs to run on the same box, I would advice to play with process priorities or resource control.
Many thanks for this, I know so, so many companies that have put their applications on the same box as the administration server.
Anyway with process priority and control, how do you do it? i.e to make the administration server a higher priority than the application, so if the application fails i.e the JVM Heap goes to 100% the admin server is still able to run.
Are you talking here about lower leve unix process priorities or something BEA do with weblogic?
