CouchCluster - Intracluster Communication - Private IP


I have a query regarding communication between the couch cluster nodes (Node Data Exchange). Is it possible to use a private IP address with a dedicated ethernet for node data exchange processes. This will help isolating the( rebalance) traffic away from the incoming traffic from the sdk or kafka connecting to couchbase.


Yes. You essentially want to use split-horizon DNS - setup your cluster with hostnames, and have the hostname resolve to your “internal”, private IP from the cluster nodes, but resolve to the external, public IP from the client nodes.

Thankyou. I will have a look
