Load balanced

Last updated 10 months ago

Eyewitness supports applications that run over multiple servers.

Deploying Eyewitness to a load balanced server cluster

Eyewitness should be installed and configured in your development environment as you would for any changes to your code. Then deploy your changes to all servers as part of your deployment process.

Each server should have the same EYEWITNESS_APP_TOKEN and EYEWITNESS_SECRET_KEY used. If you have a paid subscription, each server should also have the same EYEWITNESS_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY on all.

Dont forget to ensure you run config:cache, route:cache and queue:restart after deploying to production if you use those features, to ensure Eyewitness is correctly loaded by your production environment.

Caching for multiple load balanced applications

Eyewitness uses the built in Laravel caching system to perform some of the functions. If you are running a load balanced application across multiple servers, Eyewitness requires your cache to be single shared across all instances.

This is a typical configuration for load balanced applications, so it is likely you already have this by default.
