A MediaBeacon webhead is a copy of the MediaBeacon web interface that is deployed in an external appserver (e.g. Tomcat, WebSphere, WebLogic, etc.). Webheads have several main uses:
- Creating multiple web interfaces for load balancing and handling more concurrent user sessions.
- Advanced configuration. For example, administrators have more granular control of memory and other settings in Tomcat versus the built-in Jetty web server.
- Advanced configuration. For example, an administrator could theoretically modify the webapp contents in an external server, whereas MediaBeacon’s built-in webapp is read-only.
This manual provides basic information on how to install an external MediaBeacon webhead. For configuration questions not addressed here, please contact MediaBeacon Support.
