Relational databases typically use a pool of connections to make it more efficient for applications to connect to the database. With a connection pool, the RDBMS maintains a specific number of open connections for each given connection configuration. When the database receives a connection request, it allocates a connection from the pool, rather than opening a new connection.
When you set up the User Data Repository and Job Queue Manager to connect to a relational database, it is important to make sure that the connection pool settings configured in your database are sufficient to support all the connections from
- SuperWEB2 User Data Repository and Job Queue Manager
- SuperADMIN (if you are using the relational database to store your user data)
- Any other processes running on your network that connect to the database
Step 1 - Check Configured Connection Settings
Calculate the total maximum number of connections configured for the following features:
|SuperWEB2 User Data Repository||The |
|SuperWEB2 Job Queue Manager||The |
|SuperADMIN (when storing user data in the RDBMS)||The relevant database configuration properties file in the SuperADMIN server configuration directory (typically C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperADMIN\server\config)|
|Any other processes||Check the settings for any other processes running on your network that connect to the same RDBMS|
Step 2 - Configure the Connection Pool in the RDBMS
Configure the connection pool settings in the RDBMS so that there are enough connections to support the figure you reached in step 1. Refer to your RDBMS documentation for help with this step.
