Application IP discovery


#1

We are looking at using a tool that requires us to discover or to know the IP address of each application server. There are tools to do this in a straight-up AWS environment or via multicast in a non-cloud environment but I’m unsure of how to approach this in Aptible. Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.


#2

This is not generally possible on Enclave, can you describe your use case a little bit / what software are we talking about here?


#3

Thanks, Thomas. We are considering something like Hazelcast or Infinispan. We’d embed an instance of either in our application rather than running them as a separate master.


#4

Thanks for the clarification, Rob. There is currently no provision for inter-container communication on Enclave (traffic between containers goes through Endpoints), so, I’m afraid embedding Hazelcast into your app is unlikely to work.
