is it possible to configure a dedicated method server in WC 9.1 for certain operations?

Is it possible to configure a dedicated method server in WC 9.1 for certain operations ?

say for example, you you have a WC server with 1 background MS and 3 foreground MS and you need one of those method servers to just handle requests or actions that are come from within Creo/Pro-E. Since the CAD actions have the "epm" text in the url, it is possible to direct all such request to the dedicated MS while the remaining 2 method servers can handle any other non-cad operations/actions.

There's no tested/documented way to do this, but theoretically it should be possible. In 9.1, Tomcat handles the load balancing of requests to Method Servers. What you could do is set up two Tomcat instances. One that only forwards requests to the Creo/Pro-E MS, and the other would load balance requests between the two remaining MS's. Then, you'd need to edit apache's app-Windchill-AJP.conf file and add another ProxyPassMatch directive. You'd need to edit the regex string in the two ProxyPassMatch directives so that one would match your epm urls, and forward the request to the Creo/Pro-E tomcat instance. The other ProxyPassMatch would need to match all non-epm urls and forward the request to the non-Creo tomcat.

Yes you can configure a dedicated method server for certain operations. Based upon workflows, not necessarily in the way you described though. When you create/edit a workflow, their is a checkbox for dedicated queue, you can then set a queue to a specific method server. All of this is detailed in the System Administrators Guide, chapter 8, Background Queues. After you've looked at that chapter, let me know what questions you have.
