The application has two connection pools, one to service agent traffic, and the other for the UI. You can configure them as one logical pool with a 85/15 (agent/ui) percentage split, and use "dbPool" as the pool name in the further settings. Or, you can configure each pool separately, where the pool names are "default" and "ui". Note that the names after the "." come verbatim from DBCP at http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-dbcp/configuration.html.

Table A.4 Optional config.properties Values


  • dbpool.ui.initialSize(5)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 5

    The initial number of connections that are created when the pool is started.

  • dbpool.ui.maxActive(15)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 15

    The maximum number of active connections that can be allocated from this pool at the same time.

  • dbpool.ui.minIdle(0)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 0

    The minimum number of established connections that should be kept in the pool at all times. Default value is derived from ???.

  • dbpool.ui.maxIdle(5)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 5

    The maximum number of connections kept in the pool at all times. Idle connections are checked periodically, if enabled, and connections idle for longer than minEvictableIdleTimeMillis are released.

  • dbpool.ui.maxWaitMillis(30 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 30000 seconds

    The maximum number of milliseconds the pool waits for a connection to be returned before throwing an exception. Set to -1 to wait indefinitely.

  • dbpool.ui.timeBetweenEvictionRunsMillis(5 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 5000 milliseconds

    The number of milliseconds to sleep between runs of the idle connection validation or cleaner thread. Do not set this value to less than 1 second. It specifies how often checks are performed for idle connections, and how often idle connections are validated.

  • dbpool.ui.minEvictableIdleTimeMillis(15 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 15 seconds

    The minimum amount of time an object may sit idle in the pool before it is eligible for eviction.

  • dbpool.default.initialSize(20)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 20

    The initial number of connections created when the pool is started.

  • dbpool.default.maxActive(70)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 70

    The maximum number of active connections allocated from this pool at the same time.

  • dbpool.default.minIdle(0)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 0

    The minimum number of established connections kept in the pool at all times.

  • dbpool.default.maxIdle(5)

    Property Value
    Type Integer
    Default Value 20

    The maximum number of connections kept in the pool at all times.

  • dbpool.default.maxWaitMillis(30 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 30 seconds

    The maximum number of milliseconds the pool waits for a connection to be returned before throwing an exception.

  • dbpool.default.timeBetweenEvictionRunsMillis(5 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 5 seconds

    The number of milliseconds to sleep between runs of the idle connection validation or cleaner thread. Do not set this value to less than 1 second. It specifies how often checks are performed for idle connections, and how often idle connections are validated.

  • dbpool.default.minEvictableIdleTimeMillis(15 seconds)

    Property Value
    Type String
    Default Value 15 seconds

    The minimum amount of time an object may sit idle in the pool before it is eligible for eviction.
