For a complete list and description of magnus.conf directives, see the Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator’s Configuration File Reference.
You can specify the size of the send buffer (SndBufSize) and the receiving buffer (RcvBufSize) at the server’s sockets. For more information regarding these buffers, see your UNIX/Linux documentation.
You can set the buffer size by:
Setting or changing the SndBufSize and RcvBufSize values in the Magnus Editor of the Server Manager
You can specify the number of seconds the server waits for data to arrive from the client before closing the connection by using theAcceptTimeout directive. If data does not arrive before the timeout expires, the connection is closed. This is set to 30 seconds by default. Under most circumstances, you won’t need to change this setting. You can free up threads by setting this to less than the default, but you might also disconnect users with slower connections.
You can set AcceptTimeout by:
Setting or changing the AcceptTimeout value in the Magnus Editor of the Server Manager
You can adjust the CGIStub parameters on UNIX/Linux systems. In Sun Java System Web Server, the CGI engine creates CGIStub processes as needed. On systems that serve a large load and rely heavily on CGI-generated content, it is possible for the CGIStub processes to consume all system resources. If this is happening on your server, the CGIStub processes can be tuned to restrict how many new CGIStub processes can be spawned, their timeout value, and the minimum number of CGIStub processes that will be running at any given moment.
The four directives and their defaults that can be tuned to control Cgistub are:
MinCGIStubs controls the number of processes that are started by default. The first CGIStub process is not started until a CGI program has been accessed. The default value is 2. If you have a init-cgi directive in the magnus.conf file, the minimum number of CGIStub processes are spawned at startup.
MaxCGIStubs controls the maximum number of CGIStub processes the server can spawn. This is the maximum concurrent CGIStub processes in execution, not the maximum number of pending requests. The default value shown should be adequate for most systems. Setting this too high may actually reduce throughput. The default is 10.
CGIStubIdleTimeout causes the server to kill any CGIStub processes that have been idle for the number of seconds set by this directive. Once the number of processes is at MinCGIStubs, it does not kill any more processes. The default is 45.
You can set the CGIStub processes by:
