The goal of cluster administration is to ensure that clusters and servers work smoothly, and scale over time. By default, the SAP Mobile Platform is installed as a one-node cluster. The one-node cluster is supported in development or test environments. Production deployments of SAP Mobile Platform are likely to require multiple nodes. Cluster administration is mostly a nonroutine administration task.

|Installing the cluster||One-time installation per cluster||SAP Mobile Platform installer|
|Setting up Relay Servers||One-time initial installation and configuration; occasionally adding servers to the cluster||Manual installation; manual setup using configuration files.|
|Suspending and resuming server nodes||On demand, as required||SAP Control Center|
|Setting cluster properties, including cache database settings, monitoring database setup, and so on||Once, or as cluster changes require||Manual configuration using files and .BAT scripts.|
|Tuning the server performance.||Post installation with infrequent tuning as required||SAP Control Center.|
the cluster to:
||Post installation configuration with infrequent tuning as required|
|Setting cluster log file settings for SAP Mobile Server system components||Once, unless log data requirements change|
|Administering the runtime databases||Routine to ensure that the database server is monitored and backed up, that there is sufficient space for SAP Mobile Platform metadata and cached data tables, and that performance is within acceptable limits (performance tuning)||Established processes and command line utilities. Consult with your database administrator.|
|Reviewing licensing information, including currently used licenses count||Occasional, or as device user registration and deregistration occurs||SAP Control Center.|
