Many of our customers are using Jenkins for their software builds integrated with Rational Team Concert (RTC) software configuration management (SCM). This is a powerful combination but one that should be managed carefully so as not to put undue load on the RTC server. Based on several customer experiences my colleagues and I from development and services have put together an article that captures our guidance and recommendations when using RTC as an SCM system in Jenkins jobs. Check it out here: Using Rational Team Concert for source code management in Jenkins jobs.
As a deployment architect when advising customers on their topology, I’m often asked about the supported options for reverse proxies and load balancing. Further, some customers ask about using DNS aliasing over a Reverse Proxy, which is supported but not a best practice.
While some of these details can be found in the Knowledge Center and deloyment wiki, we’ve not had a central article listing options with any comparisons. My colleagues in IBM Support have recently published an article with these details here: Reverse Proxies and Load Balancers in CLM Deployment.
