A grid is an alias assigned to a group of nodes that allows you to automate the distribution of workflows and sessions across nodes.

When you use a grid, the Integration Service distributes workflow tasks and session threads across multiple nodes. A Load Balancer distributes tasks to nodes without overloading any node. Running workflows and sessions on the nodes of a grid provides the following performance gains:

Balances the Integration Service workload.

Processes concurrent sessions faster.

Processes partitions faster.

The Integration Service requires CPU resources for parsing input data and formatting the output data. A grid can improve performance when you have a performance bottleneck in the extract and load steps of a session.

A grid can improve performance when memory or temporary storage is a performance bottleneck. When a PowerCenter mapping contains a transformation that has cache memory, deploying adequate memory and separate disk storage for each cache instance improves performance.

Running a session on a grid can improve throughput because the grid provides more resources to run the session. Performance improves when you run a few sessions on the grid at a time. Running a session on a grid is more efficient than running a workflow over a grid if the number of concurrent session partitions is less than the number of nodes.
