Subject Using keep alive to increase performance
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2004 19:20:52 GMT

I was looking for a way to increase performance, because it seems the 
server is topped off at around 100 request per seconds.  Searching for 
information about keep alive seem not be so easy.  But at the end, I get 
it to work by doing this:

1) Download the commons-httpclient at
2) Add the httpclient's jar to class path
3) Create client-config.wsdd in the client's root directory, and its 
content is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<deployment name="commonsHTTPConfig"
  <transport name="http" 
pivot="java:org.apache.axis.transport.http.CommonsHTTPSender" />
  <transport name="local" pivot = 
"java:org.apache.axis.transport.local.LocalSender" />
  <transport name="java" 
pivot="" />

4) Run the client with this command line argument:


Step 4 does not seem to be needed (but was recommended) because without 
it, it still seems to work.  (To disable this, I remove the library, and 
also rename the file client-config.wsdd)

All good and well.  BUT:  to my surprised, the performance instead of 
increased, it actually 100% slower in my test.  I use a sort of Tcp 
Monitor to see the number of connections and indeed, it reduce the 
number of connection down to 1, but somehow it's much slower than 
multiple connections.

The test was using a single client, calling the server 1000 times 
sequentially (one after another).

Does anyone have any idea about why this is so?
