Ensure that the
enabled setting in the
xl block of the
xl-deploy.conf file is set to
yes, as described in Configure satellite communication.
This issue can be caused by the configuration of the satellite address. The IP address and port number that you specify when you create the satellite configuration item (CI) in XL Deploy’s repository must exactly match the values that appear in the satellite’s log when it is started.
For example, in this log:
13:32:27.802 INFO Remoting - Remoting started; listening on addresses :[akka.tcp://XL-Satellite@192.168.1.7:8380] 13:32:27.804 INFO Remoting - Remoting now listens on addresses: [akka.tcp://XL-Satellite@192.168.1.7:8380]
The satellite starts listening to the address
192.168.1.7 on port
8380. These are the values that you must use for the satellite in XL Deploy.
Note: If the satellite is listening to
127.0.0.1, you must use this value when adding the satellite to XL Deploy. Using
localhost is incorrect and will fail.
If you deploy an application to a satellite and you see an error such as:
akka.remote.OversizedPayloadException: Discarding oversized payload sent to Actor[akka.tcp://XL-Satellite@mycompany.local:8380/]: max allowed size 128000 bytes, actual size of encoded class akka.actor.ActorSelectionMessage was 162392 bytes.
akka.remote.netty.tcp.maximum-frame-size property to the
xl block of the
xl-deploy.conf file and
XL_DEPLOY_SATELLITE_HOME/conf/satellite.conf files. The recommended procedure is to set this property to
150000. If you continue to encounter the error, increase the setting by increments of
50000 until the error does not occur. Ensure that the property’s value is the same in the configuration files on both XL Deploy and the satellite.
If you are using SSL connection to communicate with XL Satellite, add the
xl.task.system.akka.remote.netty.ssl.maximum-frame-size property of the
satellite.conf file is divided into two sections: for configuring the
akka communication system and for configuring the
akka task system. If a communication failure occurs between the satellite and the XL Deploy server, the
akka task system continues to function and only the
akka communication system will require a restart.
If you added configuration options in
satellite.conf under the
akka key and you upgrade to XL Deploy version 7.2.0 or later, the satellite will not start. The satellite log will show an error and you will have to move the configuration options to
