Creating specialized node types for on-premises environments

Suggest edit Updated on August 18, 2021

Determine whether you need specialized node types in addition to the Pega-provided node types. For example, you might want to dedicate a node type to database inquiries.

To add specialized node types, use the -DapplicableNodeTypes JVM argument as a master list to specify all node types, both Pega-provided and your specialized node types. The system only recognizes the node types specified in this argument.

  1. Use the -DapplicableNodeTypes JVM argument to specify a comma-delimited list of node types. This list must be the same across all nodes in your cluster and must include both all Pega-provided node types as well as your specialized node types:
    Note: To ensure that all the resources that you associate with node types run correctly in your production environment, list the same node types in the -DapplicableNodeTypes argument when you create clusters in you development and production systems. As you create these clusters, do not to include the RunOnAllNodes or Universal or node types in the -DapplicableNodeTypes argument.
    Result: Adding your specialized node types to the -DapplicableNodeTypes argument creates the node type.
