[Thinlinc-technical] mirrored TL Manager

  hi Philippe,

I am running a separate agent for each user in the form of LXC containers:
light-weight for each user, total isolation from other users, very fast to
start, and (using cloning from a template LXC container) very quickly to
build for a new user.

With the "explicit_agent_selection" option in the master's
"vsmserver.hconf", I direct which agent (running on physical host nearby
the selected user) will serve a user 'locally'.

The master cluster is just acting for config redundancy, to direct each
user to his own 'local' agent.

Maybe this way of working can help you too ?

cheers !
