Manual Deployment for Interaction Server Proxy

This section describes the manual deployment of Interaction Server Proxy.

Introduction

Large numbers of custom desktop (ESP client) connections to Interaction Server may give rise to performance issues.

Important
  • Interaction Server Proxy support High Availability in Warm Standby mode.
  • Interaction Server Proxy are not supported with Genesys Agent Desktop and desktops that connect using Interaction SDK. A custom desktop that connects using Platform SDK Contact can use Interaction Server Proxy.

To mitigate the issues caused by a high load on the server, Genesys introduced Interaction Server Proxy in release 7.6.1. Desktop applications can be configured to connect to these Proxy servers instead of the main server, significantly reducing the load on the server. For example, it is easier for the server to handle 20,000 clients that operate through ten proxies (only ten connections) than to handle the same 20,000 clients that each connect separately.

Important
  • This Proxy component is not part of the eServices Configuration Wizards and must be installed manually.
  • Interaction Server Proxy supports connections from desktop applications and from Stat Server.

Because of the many variables in deployment (choice of operating system, number of clients, details of architecture) is so broad, it is not possible to provide exact guidelines as to when deploying a Proxy server would be advantageous. However, it may be stated that you can anticipate performance issues when the number of clients exceeds 10,000.

Requirements

This component works with Interaction Server. In order for the Proxy server to work properly, all components that are needed by Interaction Server must be installed. This will depend on your environment and how you are using Interaction Server. For more details, refer to the chapter that is applicable to you:

Deploying Interaction Server Proxy
