Creating a Dedicated Snaplex for Ultra Pipelines

As a best practice, we recommend that you create a dedicated Snaplex to run your Ultra Pipelines.  

To create a Snaplex:

  1. In SnapLogic Manager, go to your project folder, click , and from the drop-down menu, select Snaplex.

  2. On the Settings tab of the Create Snaplex dialog, enter the following information:
    • Name: Enter the name for this Snaplex.
    • Location: Select Groundplex.
    • Environment: Enter the name of your environment.
    • Version: Select the Snaplex version on which the target Pipelines run.
    • Email addresses for notifications: Enter multiple email addresses.
    • Load balancer: Leave this field blank. 
    • Ultra load balancer: Enter the FeedMaster hostname.

  3. On the Node Properties tab, enter the following information:
    • Maximum slots: Enter the maximum number of Snaps (slots) used in Pipelines intended for this Snaplex.
    • Reserved slot %: Enter the percentage of Snaps needed for interactive Pipeline operations.
    • Maximum memory %: Enter as a percentage the memory threshold for nodes executing pipelines. Only nodes below this value are considered for Pipeline executions.
    • Heap max size: Enter maximum  heap size Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The Default is Auto.
    • HTTP Interface: Choose from where Snaplex node accepts HTTP network connections.
    • HTTP Port: Enter from where Snaplex node listens to HTTP connections.
    • HTTPS Port: Enter from where Snaplex node listens to HTTPS connections.
    • Restart Max Wait time: Select either Minutes (in which case you specify the number of minutes) or Forever for the waiting time before the Snaplex node restarts.
    • Snaplex node types: Specify the service performed by this Snaplex node:
      • Hostname: Enter the Hostname
      • Server type: Select JCC.
