Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Performance Tuning, Sizing, and Scaling Guide


You must specify all configuration information for performance buckets in the magnus.conf and obj.conf files. Only the default-bucket is automatically enabled.

First, you must enable performance statistics collection and perfdump.

The following examples show how to define new buckets in magnus.conf:

Init fn="define-perf-bucket" name="acl-bucket" description="ACL bucket"

Init fn="define-perf-bucket" name="file-bucket" description="Non-cached responses"

Init fn="define-perf-bucket" name="cgi-bucket" description="CGI Stats"

The previous examples create three buckets: acl-bucket, file-bucket, and cgi-bucket. To associate these buckets with functions, add bucket=bucket-name to the obj.conf function for which to measure performance.


PathCheck fn="check-acl" acl="default" bucket="acl-bucket"
Service method="(GET|HEAD|POST)" type="*~magnus-internal/*" 
fn="send-file" bucket="file-bucket"
<Object name="cgi">
ObjectType fn="force-type" type="magnus-internal/cgi"
Service fn="send-cgi" bucket="cgi-bucket"
