Applies to

MetroCluster TieBreaker


No, there is not special network bandwidth requirements for using TieBreaker in a MetroCluster configuration

The MetroCluster Tiebreaker management pack provides monitoring of MetroCluster systems and provides the ability to detect site disasters and ISL failures. Tiebreaker software is installed on a Linuxhost, typically on a virtual machine, that is located in a third failure domain separate from the failure domains of either cluster in the MetroCluster solution.
You need to keep network connectivity between TieBreaker server and the cluster of both sites.
