Configuring NameServers : Configuring a NameServer

Configuring a NameServer

The OpenEdge® NameServer controls a pool of brokers that register (with the NameServer) the application services they provide. The NameServer can then direct client connection requests to a broker that supports a requested application service. The NameServer also provides location transparency, and, when the NameServer Enterprise Edition is installed, the ability to perform load balancing. Load balancing allows you to balance client workload among multiple brokers that service the same application (that is, the same set of procedures and resources).
For more information, see Configuring local instances and Configuring remote instances.
