Used in: cluster-config.
Specifies configuration information for the Packet publisher, used for network data transmission.
The Packet publisher is responsible for ensuring that transmitted packets reach the destination cluster node. The publisher maintains a set of packets which are waiting to be acknowledged, and if the ACK does not arrive by the packet-delivery resend timeout, the packet will be retransmitted. The recipient node will delay the ACK, in order to batch a series of ACKs into a single response.
The rate at which the publisher will accept and transmit packet may be controlled via the burst-mode and traffic-jam settings. Throttling may be necessary when dealing with slow networks, or small packet-buffers.
The following table describes the elements you can define within the packet-publisher element.
|<packet-size>||Required||Specifies the UDP packet sizes to utilize.|
|<packet-delivery>||Required||Specifies timing parameters related to reliable packet delivery.|
|<notification-queueing>||Required||Contains the notification queue related configuration info.|
|<burst-mode>||Required||Specifies the maximum number of packets the publisher may transmit without pausing.|
|<traffic-jam>||Required||Specifies the maximum number of packets which can be enqueued on the publisher before client threads block.|
|<packet-buffer>||Required||Specifies how many outgoing packets the OS will be requested to buffer.|
|<priority>||Required||Specifies a priority of the packet publisher execution thread.
Legal values are from 1 to 10.
