Adding FME Engines on a Separate Machine

You can add processing capacity to your FME Server by installing additional FME Engines on a separate computer from the FME Server Core.

In the instructions below, the computer that hosts the FME Server Core is the <coreHost>.

Note: In a fault-tolerance environment, we recommend assigning unique names to FME Engines. However, if multiple FME Engine hosts have the same FME Engine name, the job queue server configuration applies to all FME Engines with the same name in the same way regardless of which host it resides on. For more information, see Job Queues.
