Load balancer plug-in healthcheck generates a large number of connection/disconnection at the background (load). For health check purposes, a runDaemonMonitor thread performs connect/disconnect for every Application Server listener. This can lead to connection saturation on Enterprise Server.
A new attribute, monitor-interval-in-seconds, has been developed for the loadbalancer.xml file. This attribute can be used to insert a pause between connect/disconnect events in the case where hundreds of listeners are configure for the load balancer plug-in. Default pause value is 0.
