Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Release Notes

New Configuration Properties for Site Monitoring

The Access Manager site monitoring feature includes these new properties:




Interval time in milliseconds for site monitoring. The site monitoring feature checks each site's availability within the specified time interval. Default: 60000 milliseconds (1 minute). 


Timeout in milliseconds for site availability checking. The site monitoring feature waits for the specified timeout value for a response from the site. Default: 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds).  

The patch does not add these properties to the file. To use these new properties with values other than the default values:

  1. Add the properties and their values to the file in the following directory, depending on your platform:

    • Solaris systems: /etc/opt/SUNWam/config

    • Linux systems: /etc/opt/sun/identity/config

    For Policy Agents, add these properties to the file.

  2. Restart the Access Manager Web container for the values to take effect.

Custom implementation. In addition, the com.sun.identity.sitemonitor.SiteStatusCheck class allows you to customize your own implementation for checking site availability using the following interface:


Each implementation class must use the doCheckSiteStatus method.

public interface SiteStatusCheck { 
public boolean doCheckSiteStatus(URL siteurl);
