For reliability and performance reasons it is possible to configure more file shares for the same MMC area. File shares can be configured as UNC paths by the property Path to Directory on Server (COOSYSTEM@1.1:darearemdir). If file shares are configured the Fabasoft Folio Kernel reads and writes all contents from the shares without the Fabasoft Folio MMC Service.
When the Fabasoft Folio Kernel reads a content, the file access occurs on a randomly selected file share. (Load distribution). If the content cannot be found on one share another share is selected. (Reliability)
When writing contents the Fabasoft Folio Kernel writes parallel to all configured file shares. The transaction is successful when at least on 50 percent of the configured shares the write operation succeeded.
