    Is there a limit to how much I can enhance the gateway's message processing capacity? Like say for example, if the gateway is designed to handle binary files (base64 encoded) in a SOAP message. Is there a way to increase the gateway's capacity to handle and forward 100+ MB messages to a backend server? How much can I safely increase the io.xmlPartMaxBytes cluster property and the Java Heap size of the gateway itself?

    Hi ,

     

    There is no one answer on this question as it depends on a lot off factors

    like memory ,cpu , network .  and think like Load balancer and network setup.

    type of communication

    There is a general section in the documentation about optimizing the gateway :

    Dear Sampath,
    The cluster wide properties are the same for software gateway or virtual appliance gateway.
    You can allow bigger payload(file) by increase the cwp io.xmlPartMaxBytes.

    Regards,

    Hi Mark,

    I thought we need to change the something more in java heap memory side, as i remember that in one of the documentation it was suggested for Virtual Appliance.

    Dear Sampath,
    You can set "node.java.heap" in the /opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/node/default/etc/conf/node.properties file,
    for example,
    node.java.heap=4096

    will set the heap size to 4096m, ie. -Xmx4096m

    Regards,
    Mark
