[LDM #ETD-909520]: Migrating Architectures and Keeping in sync



Hi Jeremy,

re:

Are they spinning up a new machine or reloading the OS on the existing one?
I can't see how it would be the same machine since you say one is SPARC
and the other is Intel.  Given this, why not setup the new Intel machine
to start ingesting data before the old SPARC one is decommissioned?

Correct.

There isn't.

I am not sure if the can or if this is needed.  If the machine sending
data to the downstream facility has an LDM queue that is large enough
to hold all of the data that would be sent during the downstream machine's
downtime, then all the downstream has to do is extend the data request
to the period before its downtime.

Again, I am not sure that you need to move/copy the state files from
the old installation to the new one.

Cheers,

Tom
