Application IP discovery


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.


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


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.


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.
