Endpoint states in detail:

State

Description

#Active

Endpoint is up and running.

#Timeout

Endpoint encountered an error, it is a candidate for suspension. If it continues to encounter errors, it will be suspended. It can still send messages.

#Suspended

Endpoint encountered errors and is sent to a state where it cannot send requests. It cannot send messages and messages coming to it will result in a fault.

OFF

Endpoint is not active.

When WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus boots up, endpoints are in the "Active" state and ready to send messages. If the user does not put the endpoint into OFF state, it will be in the "Active" state until an error occurs.

Connection timeout interval. If a the remote endpoint does not respond in this time, it will be treated as a "Timeout."

When a response comes to a timed out request, weather to discard it or invoke the fault handler. If you select "never", the endpoint remains in the "Active" state.

Errors to send the endpoint into the "Timeout" state retriesBeforeSuspension.

retriesBeforeSuspension

Integer

0

In the "Timeout" state this number of requests minus one can be tried and can be failed before endpoint is marked as "Suspended" retryDelay. This setting is a per endpoint setting. It is not a per message setting. So several messages can be tried in parallel and fail and the remaining retries will be reduced.

errorCodes

Comma separated list of error codes

All the errors except the errors specified in markForSuspension

Errors to send the endpoint in to the "Suspended" state.

initialDuration

milliseconds

60 x 60 x 1000

After an endpoint gets "Suspended" it will wait for this amount of time before trying to send the messages coming to it. All the messages coming during this time period will result in fault sequence activation.

progressionFactor

Integer

1

The endpoint will try to send the messages after the initialDuration. next duration = Max(initialDuration x progressionFactor ^ retry count, maximumDuration).

maximumDuration

milliseconds

Long.MAX_VALUE

Upper bound of retry duration.

Sample Configuration:

Code Block
<endpoint name="Sample_First" statistics="enable" >
    <address uri="http://localhost/myendpoint" statistics="enable" trace="disable">
        <timeout>
