HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Single domain network

A single domain network consists of a master domain manager and any number of agents.

Figure 1 shows an example of a single domain network. A single domain network is well-suited to companies that have few locations and business functions. All communication in the network is routed through the master domain manager. With a single location, you are concerned only with the reliability of your local network and the amount of traffic it can handle.

Figure 1. Single domain topology

Single domain networks can be combined with other networks, single or multiple domain, to meet multiple site requirements. HCL Workload Automation supports internetwork dependencies between jobs running on different networks.

Figure 2. Single domain topology on multiple sites
The diagrams show two different types of HCL Workload Automation networks.

Example 1 shows a single domain network. The master domain manager is located in Atlanta, along with several agents. There are also agents located in Denver. The agents in Denver depend on the master domain manager in Atlanta to resolve all interagent dependencies, even though the dependencies might be on jobs that run in Denver. An alternative would be to create separate single domain networks in Atlanta and Denver, as shown in example 2.
