Isolating CLDB Nodes

Lists the pros of creating CLDB-only nodes.

In a large cluster (100 nodes or more) create CLDB-only nodes to ensure high performance. This configuration also provides additional control over the placement of the CLDB data, for load balancing, fault tolerance, or high availability (HA). Setting up CLDB-only nodes involves restricting the CLDB volume to its own topology and making sure that all other volumes are on a separate topology. As both the CLDB-only path and the non-CLDB path are children of the root topology path, new non-CLDB volumes are not guaranteed to keep off the CLDB-only nodes. To avoid this problem, set a default volume topology. See Setting Default Volume Topology Using the CLI.
