The two PacketShapers must have similar traffic trees so that flows will be classified and controlled identically, and the same measurement data will be collected on each unit. Youll want to make sure each unit has the same traffic classes, policies, partitions, and settings. Blue Coat offers a couple ways you can configure units with the same settings.
With this technique, you configure one of the standby units, save its configuration, and then load the configuration on the other standby unit.
PolicyCenter is a Blue Coat software package that centralizes management and propagates configuration changes to multiple PacketShapers. You can use PolicyCenter to distribute traffic configurations between direct standby units. See PolicyCenter Overview.
