If your critical business applications must be available 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week, regardless of network failures, system failures, or complete site
outages, then HP Reliable Transaction Router (RTR) is for you.
Since 1990, HP RTR has been implemented around the world in stock exchanges,
financial services organizations, railway reservation systems, and other
business-critical environments to provide continuous application availability.
RTR provides application-disaster tolerance with transaction integrity and
real-time transaction completion for the following platforms:
- HP-UX Integrity
- Linux Integrity
- OpenVMS Integrity servers
- OpenVMS Alpha
- Linux x86_32 (Frontend only)
- Linux x86_64 New!
(Supported from RTR V5.2 onwards)
Announcing the launch of RTR Version 5.2
HP is pleased to announce the launch of RTR Version 5.2. Some of the new
features introduced in RTR Version 5.2 are as follows:
Support for Linux 5.2 (x86_64) servers
RTR is now available on HP Proliant x86-64 bit Linux platform. With RedHat
Cluster-suite and Global File System (GFS), RTR helps you build server
application clusters which are highly available and also reliable with no loss
of data during their migration from an ACTIVE to STANDBY node.
Support for Microsoft Windows x86_64
RTR (32-bit) is now qualified on Windows x86_64 operating system.
Selective data compression
RTR is enhanced to selectively compress data packets to transport large amounts
of data over a congested network. In case of a network with insufficient
bandwidth, RTR used to buffer data leading to non-availability of memory and
eventually process failures. The selective compression addresses this issue and
makes RTR fault free even in case of congested networks.
Support for 64-bit library on OpenVMS
RTR is enhanced to extend the memory allocation capacity of RTR processes by
supporting 64-bit pointers. This would enable RTR to work with an increased
number of applications on any given node.

Announcing HP OpenView Smart Plug-in (SPI) for HP Reliable Transaction
RTR-SPI provides a key to centralized, ready-to-go availability management
facility for RTR product and its applications. It enables customers to perform
business-centric service management, event management, performance monitoring
and reporting on RTR environment to support business critical processes. HP
OpenView monitors, manages and controls large number of products and
applications. Using RTR-SPI, HP OpenView will extend its monitoring capability
to the RTR application environment.
RTR-SPI sample program demonstrates the use of API’s exposed by
RTR, which can be used to develop a smart plug-in for collecting RTR parameters. It
collects RTR related data and then passes them to OpenView Operations Agents for
The sample application can be enhanced to suit one's needs. Using RTR-SPI,
the monitoring capability of the HP Operations Manager is extended to the RTR
the RTR-SPI sample program New!
Java RTR toolkit provides the traditional fault tolerance and disaster
recovery features of the RTR product via standard java and J2EE interfaces. JRTR
provides support for JTA, IO Streams and JDBC.
By implementing the standard java interfaces JRTR is able to extend the use
of RTR to java beans, web servers and J2EE Application Servers.
