Striim 3.9.7 documentation

Changing internal database connection retry settings

By default, when Striim tries to write to the metadata repository and it is temporarily unavailable due to network problems or other issues, Striim will wait ten seconds and try again. If that attempt fails, it will wait another ten seconds and try a third time. If the third attempt fails, the server will crash.

Similarly, when an application for which recovery is enabled tries to persist WActionStore data to a MySQL or Oracle database that is unavailable, it will try again twice before crashing. (When an application for which recovery is not enabled tries to persist WActionStore data to an unavailable database, it will crash immediately.)

To change the number of attempts or the time between them, change the following property values in startUp.properties, then restart Striim.

DBConnectionMaxRetries=3
DBConnectionRetryInterval=10
