Hi,
I would like to understand more about the internal services that ensemble Solace PubSub s/w. I found that below processes are running as child processes of SolaceDaemon process:

I think dataplane process is the main processes which is required to exchange messages.
Consul process is responsible for communicating with peers in the HA triplet.
Could someone help to gain more understanding about role of other listed services here? Any pointers in the documentation also would be really helpful. I am essentially trying to understand all the internal components and services in the Solace PubSub software. I tried searching in the docs but unable to find relevant detailed explanation of internal architecture.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Raghu

    solacedaemon is the main process which contains others as child processes
    controlplane manages the redundancy. Talks to consul and watchdog
    dataplane talks to peer messaging nodes on 8741 and syncs message spools. Also, has says hello to the peers
    dataplane-linux acts as frontcontroller for messaging protocols
    mgmtplane is responsible for config-sync between peers in a ha triplet
    msgbusadapter takes care of messaging processing. Serves clients
    smrp role is to propogate subscriptions to other nodes in case of MNR
    solacecachemanager takes care of message caching
    sshd is for CLI
    nginx hosts UI for solAdmin
    uwsgi is the REST service API for SEMP v2
    vmr-solaudit??
    trmmanager??
    xmlmanager??

    Could someone please validate my understanding, correct and also shed some light on role of these components?

    Thanks

    Hi Raghu,
    I'm a product manager at Solace. The answers to these questions are getting into implementation details that we don't normally disclose.
    Best Regards,
