Hi

While reviewing recent Michael's commits (thanks Michael and the ecomify team) I stumbled upon this static variable

I know it's only a default, but yet should it not be dynamic in relation with the number of cores?

Disclaimer: I did not dig further so ignore the question if it's non sense

Hi Jacques,

as you said, it's just a default and the value can be configured through
"max-threads".

I would leave it as is.

Regards,

Michael

Right, thanks Michael

Thought some documentation is present in ThreadPool.java, I think we should document that at the service serviceengine.xml level

I mean, in general, we should document at the level used to configure, not below.

Here for instance something like "Values higher than 5 might slow things down depending of your cores numbers"

Also before written so we would have to verify why the 5 value was picked

What do you think?

Jacques

Hi Jacques,

yes, in general I think it's best to document at the place where users
do the configuration.

In this case, I cannot say if the statement makes any sense. It can be
from ancient times where you only had single core systems not making
sense anymore and it can also be correct today.

Maybe someone with more knowledege in this area can give us more info.

Regards,

Michael

Honestly I think the topic is generic enough that OFBiz doesn't need to
provide any information at all.  Thread pool sizing is not exclusive to
OFBiz and it would be strange for anyone to modify the numbers without
first researching sources that provide far more detail than a few sentences
in our config files will ever cover.

Scott

Hi Scott, Michael,

It's late but I'm still reading  Java Concurrency in Practice (not now, but actually  often :)) and I agree with (all) answers at
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13834692/threads-configuration-based-on-no-of-cpu-cores

It's indeed not a trivial task to determine the best value, and the reference above in serviceengine.xml should not hurt.
We can keep 5 but I believe have to explain why at the upper level. It's a very important value and not all people (often) read Java Concurrency in
Practice

What do you think?

Jacques
