We recommend you consider commit-edge because it can provide excellent performance in many scenarios.

This topic assumes you have read Deployment architecture.


You cannot issue the p4 unsubmit and p4 resubmit commands to an edge server. You can only issue these commands to a commit server.


Commit-edge architecture builds upon Helix Server replication technology. Before attempting to deploy a commit-edge configuration, read Replication, including the section on Connecting services, which includes information on Managing SSL key pairs.


An edge server can be used instead of a build server. If the only users of an edge server are build processes, disaster recovery is possible without backing up the local edge server-specific workspace and related information. See Migrating from existing installations.


Some Helix Core Server commands behave differently when you have edge servers. See the Support Knowledgebase article, "Edge Servers".
