connection_allocation_aggressiveness — tune the aggressiveness for establishing new connections to domains
connection_allocation_aggressiveness = "normal"
connection_allocation_aggressiveness = "high"
When set to
high, Momentum will be more aggressive when opening up new connections to domains. Momentum achieves this by considering the max_outbound_connections setting (global or domain-specific, whichever is configured) and the size of the active queue for that domain. A setting of "normal" will produce a gradual increase in the number of connections, while "high" will result in a rapid number of new connections, up to the maximum allowed.
The following figure illustrates a typical scenario, with an active queue of 400 messages and a max_outbound_connections = 32 (the default).
The default value for this option is
normal corresponds to the value
0.3 and high to the value
0.75. Using the web UI you may pick a value in between to end up with a curve in between the two shown in “Connection Allocation Aggressiveness”, though it is unlikely that you will need to. For more information on setting custom values see “The
connection_allocation_aggressiveness is valid in the binding, binding_group, domain and global scopes.
