This chapter explains the parameters that can be configured for the connection manager used in the FioranoMQ Server. In general, these parameters are the most common ones used for connection management in the server and they can be configured in the default profile at the node FioranoMQ->Fiorano->socketAcceptors->port-1->ConnectionManager through Offline configuration using Studio.

For information on how to configure the FioranoMQ Server in Offline mode, refer to Chapter 3 Offline Configuration Through Profile Manager and for Online Configuration (through the Web Management Console), refer to Chapter 30 FioranoMQ Web Management Console and on Connection Management, refer to Chapter 4 Connection Management of FioranoMQ Handbook.

Default

Default identifies whether the Connection Manager is set as a default option. All connection factories contain URL information of the Connection Manager. If no Connection Manager has its flag set to true the connection factories will retrieve their URL information from the default server URL.

Values:

The default value for the Default parameter is true. The values assignable to this parameter are true/false.

CFNameAppender (Not being used in FioranoMQ)  

The CFNameAppender parameter specifies the suffix to be attaché to the ConnectionFactory created for the ConnectionManager.

Values:

The default value for the CFNameAppenderparameter is null. The values assignable to this parameter may consist of a string of characters.

ReaderCacheDisabled

ReaderCacheDisabled is a boolean parameter indicating whether the connection cache is created on the read socket. This cache is used while reading bytes from Sockets. If this parameter is set to true, then the appropriate amount of memory is allocated for each Socket Read. If set to false memory is allocated for Socket Read based on the exact memory needed decreasing the number of memory re-allocations.

Values:

The default value for the ReaderCacheDisabled parameter is false. The values that can be assigned to this parameter are true/false.

TCPWindowSize (Not being Used in FioranoMQ)  

TCPWindowSize is used for the three ways handshaking process required for connection creation.

Values:

The default value for the TCPWindowSize parameter is 133120 bytes. The values assignable to this parameter are any positive values in Long Range.

HandshakeInWorkerThread

The HandshakeInWorkerThread is a boolean parameter indicating whether the HandShaking process was performed while accepting the connection request from the client or when creating the socket initialization context.

Values:

The default value for the HandshakeInWorkerThread parameter is true.  The values that may be assigned to this parameter are true/false.

MagicTimeout

The MagicTimeout parameter sets the socket timeout for the socket that is created. If a request does not arrive on the socket within the interval specified, a socket cleanup is performed.

Values:

The default value for the MagicTimeout parameter is 60000 seconds. The values that may be assignable to this parameter are any non-negative integer values. If this value is set to zero the ‘timeout’ is considered to be infinite.

Example:

If the MagicTimeout value is set to 60000 and a connection is made to the FioranoMQ Server and the Server fails to communicate, the socket will be cleared after one minute. This connection must communicate with the JMS Server within one minute or the Socket will be cleared and the connection closed.

Port

The Port parameter is used for binding the socket at the time of Server startup.

Values:

The default value set for the MagicTimeout parameter is 1856. A valid port value is between 0 and 65535.

Example:

if the MagicTimeout value is set to 1856, which is the default value, and the machine IP address is 192.168.1.209,  clients have to mention http://192.168.1.209:1856 as the provider URL to connect to the JMS provider.

Protocol

The Protocol parameter is used for establishing a connection between the Client and the Server.

Values:

The default value set for the Protocol parameter is TCP. The values that may be assignable to this parameter are TCP/HTTP/SUN_SSL/HTTPS_SUN.

·         TCP - Accepts connections based on the TCP Protocol.

Dependencies:

If the Protocol is set to either SUN_SSL or HTTPS_SUN, SSLEnabled must be set to true.

UseNagle

Use Nagle is a boolean parameter indicating whether the Nagle Algorithm was used in creating the socket. Using the Nagle Algorithm enables improving the efficiency of the TCP/IP networks by reducing the number of packets that need to be sent over the network. The Nagle Algorithm is used to automatically concatenate a number of small buffer messages. The process of concatenating several small messages (called nagling) increases the efficiency of a network application system by decreasing the number of packets to be sent.

Values:

The default value set for the UseNagel parameter is false. The values that can be assigned to the UseNagel parameter are true/false.

MonitoringRequest

The MonitoringRequest parameter is the default monitoring request ID sent as a validation for communication.

Values:

The default value for the MonitoringRequest parameter is 13.

If this parameter is set to true and the client does not provide authentication information, the server socket will not continue communication with the client and the connection will be dropped.           

MaxClientConnectionsCount

The MaxCientConnectionsCOunt is the maximum number of client connections allowed with the Connection Manager. A value of -1 indicates no upper limit for connections allowed.

Values:

The default value for this parameter is 1024. The values that this parameter considers valid are -1 and and any positive integer value. If this value is set to -1, there is no maximum client connection limit..

Example:

If the value for this parameter is set for 200 and 200 external connections from clients are made to the server, any attempts to create more connections which are not LPC Enabled will not be successful and all connections will be dropped.

AdminConnection (Not being used)  

AdminConnection serves the client by checking whether the connection is an Administrative Connection or a Normal Connection.

Values:

The default value set for the AdminConnection parameter is false. The values considered valid by this parameter are true/false.

Path
