Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1101) adaptive connection pool sizing
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2011 16:49:47 GMT
adaptive connection pool sizing

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1101
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1101
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: Future
            Reporter: Jon Moore
            Assignee: Jon Moore

I'm currently working on a patch (wrote most of it on a cross-country flight) that will adapt
the size of a per-route connection pool based on the interactions we see from that particular
host. There's a sample implementation that does TCP-style additive increase/multiplicative
decrease (AIMD) adaptation of the per-route pool where successful requests allow probing for
more connections, but socket timeouts, connection timeouts, and 503s all result in backoffs.

I'm hoping to hook this up for a demo to show multiple clients hitting a server with a fixed
capacity where we can kill one client and the others then increase their pool sizes to take
advantage of the unused server capacity. We can then restart the client and see things rebalance
again. This would enable folks to use HttpClient e.g. in an application server cluster setting,
where we wouldn't have to precompute or adjust the connection pool sizes as we add/remove
nodes from the cluster (whether intentionally or via failures).

Once I get that proof of concept working I'll post a patch for review. Roughly the patch hooks
into AbstractHttpClient to look either for an HttpResponse or to catch an Exception, then
hands those events off to another object to decide whether to backoff or not. In turn, we
dynamically manage a ConnPerRouteBean to adjust the maxPerRoute to allow for the pool to grow
or shrink naturally with TSSCM. Default implementations are all backwards compatible and don't
change behavior.
