Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V8.0 & V7.0                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Added ServerIOTimeOutRetry logic to     *
    *                      the plugin.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A new custom property is available for the webserver plugin.
    ServerIOTimeoutRetry
    Specifies a limit for the number of times the HTTP plugin
    retries a request that has timed out due to ServerIOTimeout.
    The default value, -1, indicates that no additional limits
    apply to the number of retries thus the request may be retried
    up to as many servers exist on the cluster or until a response
    is received. A 0 value indicates there are no retries. Retries
    are always limited by the number of servers in the cluster.
    Important: This directive does not apply to connection
    failures or timeouts due to the HTTP plug-in ConnectTimeout.
    Setting the property within the Administrative Console:
    Click Servers > WebSphere application servers > server_name,
    next, click the "+" next to Administration within the Server
    Infrastructure section, and then click Custom properties.
    Enter in "ServerIOTimeoutRetry" for the name and a numeric
    value for the number of retries for the application server.
    ??????NOTE - Any server may be chosen within the cluster
    this value. If multiple servers have this value set, the
    property take the value from the last found.
