Embedded Web Container¶
The Denodo Platform embeds the Apache Tomcat Web container, which is used, among other things, to deploy some of the Denodo Platform administration tools, the Data Catalog, etc.
When you select Custom Installation in the step 2 of the installation wizard, you can configure the following settings of the Web container:
- HTTP port number: port that the Web container will listen for incoming requests.
- Shutdown port number: port that the Web container will listen for shutdown requests.
- JMX management port number: port that the Web container will listen for requests from JMX monitoring tools such a Java VisualVM or JConsole. In addition, it is used by the other modules of the Denodo Platform to send requests to the web container such as deploy or undeploy a Denodo administration tool, a web service, etc.
- Auxiliary management port number: auxiliary port used by the web container to communicate with its clients. I.e. JMX monitoring tools and other modules of the Denodo Platform.
