Determines whether the Reports Servers send out heartbeats to each other.
When enabled on the Primary Reports Server, heartbeat signals are sent to the Redundant Reports Server, informing it that the Primary Reports Server is controlling reports. If the Redundant Reports Server has been controlling reports, it will cease doing so upon receiving this message. The heartbeat signal is sent out every [Report]HeartBeatTime.
When enabled on the Redundant Reports Server, heartbeat signals are sent to the Primary Reports Server to establish its presence (i.e. a response is required). If the Redundant Reports Server does not receive a response from the Primary Reports Server during the [Report]HeartBeatTime, it will assume control of reports.
This parameter can be defined at the finest level
of hierarchical granularity (
[Report.Clustername.ServerName]HeartBeat). See Hierarchical
Parameters for more information.
Default Value: 1
