HTTP PassThrough Transport is a non-blocking HTTP transport implementation based on HTTP Core NIO and specially designed for streaming messages. It is similar to the old message relay transport, but it does not care about the content type and simply streams all received messages through. It also has a simpler and cleaner model for forwarding messages back and forth. It can be used as an alternative to the NHTTP transport.
With the HTTP PassThrough and HTTP NIO transports, you can enable connection throttling to restrict the number of simultaneous open connections. To enable connection throttling, edit the
<PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/nhttp.properties (for the HTTP NIO transport) or
<PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/passthru-http.properties (for the PassThrough transport) and add the following line:
max_open_connections = 2
This will restrict simultaneous open incoming connections to 2. To disable throttling, delete the
max_open_connections setting or set it to -1.
Connection throttling is never exact. For example, setting this property to 2 will result in roughly two simultaneous open connections at any given time.
