Some tasks will be effected when the primary node in an HA environment is down. This knowledge base article will explain what those tasks are.

Information
Below is the list of tasks that will be impacted in the case the primary node of an Artifactory high availability cluster will be on 'offline' state:

  1. Garbage collection
  2. Backups 
  3. Imports
  4. Archive indexing (responsible for opening and mapping archived files)
  5. Maven indices (for IDE only) generation
  6. Xray event generation and propagation 

Once the primary node is back at a running state, these tasks will start to be handled by the primary node automatically.
