Most deployments have at least one extra hub. For load balancing, enterprise deployments can have several to hundreds. Secondary hubs are typically dedicated servers. They are used:
  • To provide failover capability if the primary hub is unavailable.
  • In enterprise deployments, they host services and management consoles, such as Unified Management Portal (UMP) and the Alarm Server (nas).
  • For data collection in an enterprise deployment. Use tunnels and queues to connect secondary hubs in a hierarchy for securely transporting data to the primary hub.
The topics in this section describe the process for deploying hubs on each supported operating system. For more information about configuring hubs, tunnels and queues, see the hub probe documentation in Probes Documentation Space.
For more information about how to upgrade existing hubs to a secure state, see Secure Hub and Robot.
