Appendix A- The URI format

The URI string tells the agent how to connect to the Netpoint server.

The connection can be made by several protocols and ports.

If there are more than one server ,You can configure the agent to connect by a specific order.

Alternatively, in order to make load balance ,configure it to randomize the connection.

By default it is randomized.

 

The syntex of the URI is :

failover:(uri1,…,uriN)?transportOptions

To use more than one option use the “&” character.

 

Some examples :

failover:(nio://server1:61618,ssl://server1:443)?randomize=false

The agent will first try to connect to “server1” in nio, if fails it will try in ssl.

 

failover:(nio://server1:61618,nio://server2:61618)?randomize=true&initialReconnectDelay=100

The agent will randomize connection between server1 and server2, and will wait 100 ms between reconnection attempt.

 

Optional protocols and ports:

nio – 61618

ssl – 443

 

Tansport options:

 

Option Name Default Value Description
initialReconnectDelay 10 How long to wait before the first reconnect attempt (in ms)
maxReconnectDelay 30000 The maximum amount of time we ever wait between reconnect attempts (in ms)
maxReconnectAttempts -1 -1 is default and means retry forever, 0 means don’t retry (only try connection once but no retry).
 If set to >0, then this is the maximum number of reconnect attempts before an error is sent back to the client.
randomize true use a random algorithm to choose the the URI to use for reconnect from the list provided
