Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-761) SimpleHttpServer based on Jakarta HttpComponents HttpCore
Date Tue, 23 May 2006 06:09:30 GMT
    [ ] 

Chuck Williams commented on AXIS2-761:

My performance bottleneck when hitting the server hard from the client turned out to be the
core pool size in SimpleHttpServer's request ThreadPoolExector (SimpleHttpServer.minThreads
== 25).  The semantics of ThreadPoolExecutor limit the processing threads to this value until
the queue fills up, after which time they could increase up to the max pool size (SimpleHttpServer.maxThreads
== 150).  But, requests from the client hang if there are no request threads available, so
the queue size was not increasing.  This left me at only 25 server threads max, which was
not enough to provide much cpu utilization.

The new server seems solid.  I think it just needs facilties for dynamically managing threads
based on configuration parameters and resource availability (e.g., message size).  As mentioned
before, I'm looking at adding those things.

FYI, there are some left-over comments that are now obsolete, including the one about this
not being production-quality, I hope.  :-)
