Global Parameters

You can configure the parameters of the connections created to execute queries against the Virtual DataPort Servers:

  • Query timeout: maximum time (in milliseconds) that the query will wait for the statement to be completed. If not indicated (or the value 0 is received), then it waits until execution is complete (by default 900000).
  • Chunk timeout: maximum time (in milliseconds) that the query will wait until it arrives a new chunk of results. Where this time is exceeded, Virtual DataPort returns the results extracted up to that moment. If not specified (or the value 0 is received), Virtual DataPort returns all the results together at the end of the statement run (by default 90000).
  • Chunk size: number of results that make up a chunk of results. When Virtual DataPort Tool obtains this number of results, it will return them to the Information Self-Service Tool, even though the Chunk Timeout has not been reached (by default 1000).

Database Connection URIs

You can choose whether to show the Connect tab or not for the server’s databases. If you choose to show it, you can customize several parameters:

You may use the following variables in the pattern definitions: $vdp_host, $vdp_port, $user_name, $database_name. These variables will be replaced by the appropriate values when showing the URIs to the user.
