Enable connection pooling for remote nodes when using CDPLEX
We use the PARSESS ADJACENT.NODE statement to limit parallel sessions from the local node to a remote node based on capacity as agreed with the partner node. When updating our environment to use CDPLEX with multiple server regions, this parameter is now independently managed by each local server. In order to maintain the same total parallel sessions to remote nodes when adding a second transfer region, we've had to reduce the PARSESS value by 50% to avoid potentially overwhelming a partner node. This works when both server regions are available, but when one region is down for reboot or any other reason, our capacity to remote hosts is reduced by half.
A better solution would be to have this value be shared amongst participating servers in an CD PLEX such that the PARSESS value is pooled and defines the sum total of sessions that can be running at any given time amongst all server tasks to a given SNODE.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Will be used to better use our available capacity during work windows where not all of our server tasks are up and processing workload
