Click 'Bootstrap Cluster' to make the current passive server a part of a cluster.
Note: This option is only available when the server is in the Passive state.
Add Another Node to the Cluster
Click to add a new node
Enter the server URL of the new node
Manually select a Node Tag for the new node.
The node tage is a unique identifier made up of 1-4 uppercase letters. By default, the tag of the
first node in a cluster is A, the second B, and so on. After Z, the next node will get the
tag AA, the next AB, and so on.
Decide whether to add the new node as a Member -or- as a Watcher (difference explained in Cluster View)
Toggle whether to use all available cores on the machine for this node
Set a maximum number of cores that can be used by this node
Click Test connection to verify that your cluster can communicate with the server at the specified URL
When done, click Save to add this server as a node to the cluster
This operation can also be done programatically. Read more here.
A Cluster with 2 nodes
A cluster with 2 nodes
Now your cluster contains 2 nodes:
The server running on localhost:8081 shows as Node A and is the Leader of the cluster.
The server running on localhost:8082 shows as Node B and is a Member of the cluster.
