Decommissioning Endpoints

Endpoint decommission is a process of permanent endpoint instance shut down. It can happen for various reasons, such as:

  • Dividing endpoint responsibility into a few other endpoints
  • Scaling down endpoint instances
  • Other (like removing certain functionality from the system)

When performing endpoint decommission the following aspects should be considered:

  1. Routing should be adjusted to make sure that no new messages will be delivered to that endpoint
  2. Make sure that endpoint processed all messages from it's queue
  3. Timeouts are rerouted to other endpoint instances
  4. If any errors are discovered in the ServicePulse/ServiceControl tools a redirect functionality can be used to reroute messages to another endpoint instance.
