Updated on May 17, 2024

This content applies only to On-premises and Client-managed cloud environments

Assign decision management node types to Pega Platform nodes to scale data ingestion or decision processing.

  • Add nodes to selected DM services by using the following JVM argument adjusted to your application server and operating system: java -Xmx... -DNodeType=node-type1,node-type2,node-type2 where node-type represents the DM service for which you want to add a node.

    You can add nodes to the following services:

    • ADM
    • DDS
    • RTDG
    • Stream
    • Batch
    • RealTime
    • BackgroundProcessing
    • Search
    For example:
    java -Xmx... -DNodeType=Batch,RealTime,ADM,DDS,Stream
What to do next: Verify that the status of the added nodes is NORMAL.

For more information on how to verify the status, see Monitoring decision management services. If the status is different than NORMAL, see Status of decision management nodes.
