Can BIX output files on every node onclustered environments?
Currently we have Pega 7.2 with BIX enabled, we are facing some requeriment which states that we need to generate an output file so that Business Intelligence people could grab that file and do their things. We plan to implement that through BIX because that package let us generate files from DB, Reports, etc
Thing is our Pega environment is multinode and we need to generate the output file on each node Pega is running, or at least generate the output file on node 1 destination directory and from then copy that file to the other nodes, I'm thinking more on some sync from node 1 and forth so every destinatio directory on each node gets a copy of that file, it's that possible from Pega & BIX ?
BIX will only generate the output on the node that executes the extract. The simplest solution may be to have a script run on the server to copy the file to the other nodes or to output to a shared network location.
One more option you have is you can have a BIX listener which you can use to put the generated file to an sftp location which will be a shared location and all nodes can process the file from this shared location.
