It is even possible to perform load-balancing through a new ‘dispatcher’ mode that pdfToolbox 6 can be used in. When pdfToolbox 6 is used as a dispatcher, as many ‘satellites’ as required can connect to it. A satellite is basically a regular server that will process files, the dispatcher on the other hand is a server that doesn’t process files itself but instead receives files in its job folders and sends them to the satellites to have them processed. In other words, the dispatcher has the jobs defined on it and distributes the work that needs to be done. This allows for load balancing as well as for fail over configurations so that processing does not stop even if one of the satellites is switched off.
