Ability to Stop/Start a particular instance of an Agent/Integration server

Hi Team,

As a part of housekeeping activities we often come across scenarios where we need to do a restart of a Agent/Integration server. This restart could impact the processing of orders for a time being which could lead to business impact. To deal with this situation, we would recommend IBM to provide us with a functionality where we could restart the Agent/Integration servers in a rolling fashion, i.e. the different instances of the server can be restarted in a rotational fashion. This will help us to achieve a zero downtime and the orders will not be stuck at any point of time.


Although this kind of functionality do exists in the SMA server dashboard, but it does not solve the purpose. SMA console which has an individual stop button for every instance is misleading as of now , because it stops all the instances of a server.

We request you to look into this case and do the needful to achieve this.





What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

This will help us to achieve a zero downtime and the orders will not be stuck at any point of time.
