ShapeDatabaseProxy.py <server 1> <server 2> ... <server n> [portnumber=8080]
Start a server to tie multiple remote ShapeDatabaseServer’s together to appear as a single server. This is useful since there is no change in client code to migrate from a single server to multiple servers since the XMLRPC interface is exactly the same.
The ShapeDatabaseProxy is sufficiently performant that is does not need its own dedicated node. It it perfectly acceptable to run it on the same server as one of the ShapeDatabaseServers.
