RCSP Study Guide - Data Store Synchronization
In a serial failover scenario the data stores are not synchronized by default. When the master Steelhead appliance fails, the backup Steelhead appliance will take over but users will experience cold performance again. Data store synchronization can be turned on to exchange data store content. This can either be done via the Primary or the AUX interface.
The synchronization process runs on port 7744, the reconnect timer is set to 30 seconds.(keepalive 10 seconds)
Data store synchronization can only occur between the same Steelhead appliance models and can only be used in pairs of two.
