Increasing the Maximum Simultaneous Requests¶
The Denodo Platform embeds the Apache Tomcat Web container that Virtual DataPort uses, among other things, to deploy SOAP and REST Web services. If you expect these Web services to receive a high number of concurrent requests, consider increasing the maximum number of threads that Tomcat will create to attend requests. To do this, follow these steps:
Open the file
Look for the attribute
maxThreadsand replace its default value (
150) with a higher one. For example,
There are two occurrences of the
maxThreadsattribute, one for the non-SSL Connector and another one for the SSL Connector. You can have a different value for each one.
From the Administration Tool, do the following:
Open the wizard “Concurrent Requests” on the menu “Administration > Server configuration”.
Make sure that if “Limit concurrent requests” is “On”, the value of “Max concurrent requests” is greater than or equal to the
maxThreadsattribute. Otherwise, Tomcat will process the requests, but Virtual DataPort will not be able to attend them.
If you have enabled SSL on Tomcat (explained in the section Enabling HTTPS in the Embedded Apache Tomcat), “Max concurrent requests” has to be greater than or equal to the sum of the
maxThreadsattribute of the non-SSL connector and the SSL connector.
To apply these changes, stop the Virtual DataPort server and all the Denodo administration tools. Once they are all stopped, start them again.
Each incoming request requires a thread for the duration of that
request. If Tomcat receives more simultaneous requests than the number
of available request processing threads, Tomcat creates additional
threads up to
maxThreads. If Tomcat still receives more simultaneous
requests, they are stacked up, up to the value of the
attribute of the
Connector element. Any further simultaneous
requests will receive “connection refused” errors.
