Re: How to connect multiple ESMs

Yes and there are multiple methods depending on why you want to do this and what data you need from the ESMs.

You could integrate all the ESMs into a cluster - this would provide very tight integration and allow you to use any ESM to view data, and deploy changes centrally to the entire cluster.

You could use the Distributed ESM configuration to forward many events to the other ESM - this allows more independent configuration but still maintains some integration of data types.

You could use event forwarding to send events from one ESM to a receiver on another ESM.  This allows for entirely independent configuration, but is limited in the volume of events that can be forwarded.
