How Broker Monitor Starts Broker Servers
The Broker Monitor configuration file (awbrokermon.cfg) points to the Broker Servers that reside on the host machine. When you start Broker Monitor, it reads this configuration file and automatically starts all of the Broker Servers that are identified in the file.
The Broker Monitor's configuration file is updated automatically when you install Broker Server on the host machine and when you define additional instances of Broker Server using the server_config utility. For detailed descriptions of the Broker Monitor configuration parameters, see Broker Monitor Configuration Parameters.
