Environment


Allow Pipes

Allow BBjServices to use pipes.

Cache Directory

Change the default location for caching.

Dump Filesystem Cause Stack

Dumps a stack trace to the debug log file.

*Exclusive File Access

Enable/disable this box to enable/disable.

*File Descriptors

Add/edit or remove file descriptors.

*Force JVM Local

Force the use of the local JVM.

Heartbeat Timeout (ms)

Set the heartbeat timeout. Default: 40000

*Replication/Audit Config Directory

The config directory for replication and auditing holds the replication/audit operations log files which contain the replication and auditing operations not yet processed by the target. These files can grow large in some cases so this setting allows that admin to place these files in an appropriate location on disk.

Maximum size of the documents or records stored in a Lucene index. This include document indexes as well as FULLTEXT indexes in SQL.

Max Search Results

Maximum number of search results that a Lucene-related search can return. This applies to document indexes and FULLTEXT indexes in SQL. The larger the value, the more memory will potentially be utilized when performing searches.

3rd Party Database Special Settings

Use Java SQL Types for DATE

This is a very unusual setting but necessary for various compatibility issues. Microsoft Access deals with dates in a unique way when interacting with the BBj ODBC Driver requiring the driver to return an older integer value for DATE type columns in the metadata. This is technically not correct according to the ODBC and JDBC specifications. However, in order to function with MS Access, this value must be UNCHECKED. The default is checked because it is technically correct.

Name of the operating system.

Current version of the operating system.

Jetty Licensing Settings

To access the Jetty Licensing Settings in Enterprise Manager:

  1. Log into Enterprise Manager and connect to a BBj Services instance.

  2. Expand the BBjServices node in the left tree.

  3. Select the Settings node.

  4. Scroll down until the Jetty Licence Settings section displays, as shown below:

License Attempt Timeout

Longest time to wait (in ms) for a license.

Max BBJSP Licenses

Maximum number of licenses for BBJSP applications.*

Max License Usage

Maximum number of licenses.*

Max Servlet Licenses

Maximum number of licenses for Servlets.*

Max Web Service Licenses

Maximum number of licenses for Web Services.*

Queue

How many requests can wait for a license.*

Retry Interval

Length of the pause, in milliseconds, between attempts to obtain a license.

* Items marked with an asterisk (*) denote that a zero (0) value indicates that the setting is unlimited.

When servlets are executed, licences are borrowed for the duration of the execution cycle. This can lead to license limiting factors around servlets and web services since servlets may not be able to obtain a license when under load.

In order to combat this, BASIS added new licensing settings that include:

  1. Ability to control how many licenses are available to the web layer.

  2. A timeout limit for how long a servlet or web service will wait for a license to become available.

  3. The number of requests to allow to wait for a license.

If a license is not immediately available to a request, that request will wait for one to become available unless there are already the specified number of waiting requests. If a request is unable to obtain a license due to timeout waiting or no more waiting slots, then the request will receive HTTP error 503.

BBj.properties Tab

Select the BBj.properties tab at the bottom of the BBjServices Settings page to display a read-only version of the current contents of the BBj.properties file. This may be useful for displaying properties that exist in the file, but not standard and thus not configurable from the Enterprise Manager UI.
