Servergroups

In a SERVER application group any number of components can be
specified that must be available before the group is considered
to be available. With SERVER application groups you can specify
what should happen if their components fail to start.

The automation programmer can set the numbers of members that
should be available for a SERVER application group by specifying
the Availability Target when defining the group.

    Additionally to the basic function of a server group, there is an additional feature "Rolling Recycle", that should be implemented with the server group:

    In most cases a server group is used to realize application clusters, where n members run in parallel, but only mIn case of maintance, you often restart one member after the other to ensure the service. This function should be provided by a button "rolling recycle" which stops and restarts one member after the other. Addtionally, you could think of providing a selection panel, where the operator can specify only those members that should be recycled.

    Furthermore, you should a possibility for nested server groups. E.g. for configuration where 4 members on 2 sites are providing service. In this case you would first create 1 server group for each site and then add these 2 server groups to one top-level server group.
