Subject Jetty -> AHC route producing a lot of threads
Date Mon, 31 Aug 2015 21:13:13 GMT
Hello, I am creating a simple route to test asynchronous message passing in
Camel.  When testing the route by creating 1000 simultaneous connections I
see that around 2000 threads are created to handle requests I'm forwarding
on using AHC component.  I am surprised, I thought that Jetty+AHC component
would use non-blocking asynchronous I/O, and a low number of threads.

Basic Route:

It appears that the AHC component is creating worker threads to manage
outgoing connections to localhost:9000. One for every connection made to
localhost:9090.  Am I configuring something wrong, or is this a defect in

Camel version is 2.16-SNAPSHOT
