Spool

Issue/Introduction

Hello Broadcom. I would like to know if there is a setting that can be used on a node definition, or driver, that would allow CA-Spool to open concurrent connections per node for both print and mail servers. Currently, it appears CA-Spool will only transfer 1 print/email at a time, i.e. all handled serially at an individual node level.

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

Use node pooling.....

For example, if you wanted to create a pool of SMTP nodes to send emails in parallel eg

DEFNODE SMTP,EMAIL,TCPHOST=emailserveraddress,TCPPORT=25,ACQUIRE=WORK,..

NODE EMAIL,SMTP,GROUP=10,REST=NO

NODE EMAILA,SMTP,GROUP=10,REST=NO

NODE EMAILB,SMTP,GROUP=10,REST=NO

NODE EMAILC,SMTP,GROUP=10,REST=NO

Files created with DEST=EMAIL can be selected by any of the nodes above.

Reference to the REST keyword:
