Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP7 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 measurement as described in Monitoring Current Activity Using the perfdump Utility

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 example above creates 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 you wish 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"
