In this section, we cover the HTTP tab under Internet protocols tab. We explain the sections that effect the Lotus Notes Traveler server.
The following figure shows the Basics section:
The Number active threads
field is important to Lotus Notes Traveler based on the number of devices that you have configured on the server. This number should be roughly 1.2 times the number of devices on the system.
For example, if there are 100 devices registered to the system, then this setting should be 120.
This is an approximation, and should be correct in most cases. If there are more connections made than HTTP threads available, these requests are queued up and put in a wait state on the server and may lead to a high CPU situation. To determine the number of devices on the system execute this command on the server console:
tell traveler stat show
To find the number of devices that have registered on the server, search for this entry: Push.Devices.Total=
When setting the HTTP Active Threads, ensure that your system has sufficient resource to handle the increased threads. On a 64-bit machine, a single HTTP thread will occupy about 4 MB of memory and on a 32-bit machine, this will be about 1 MB of memory. For example, the memory required to handle a load of 1000 devices on a 664-bit can be calculated as follows:
Lotus Notes Traveler: 1024MB
HTTP server: 1024MB
Operating system: 1024MB
HTTP Threads set to 1000*1.2 = 1200: 4800MB
Total memory required would be: 8384MB or about 8 GB for the server to run optimally.
You must restart the HTTP server for these changes to take effect: restart task http
The following figure shows the Mapping section of the HTTP tab:
If you decide at installation time to set the home URL to go automatically to Lotus Notes Traveler (http://server_name
take you to http://server_name/traveler
automatically), set to the Home URL field to /traveler.
If you want the home URL pointing to be the default HTTP home page, set this field to /homepage.nsf?Open
If you want the home URL pointing to the Lotus Notes Traveler, then set this field to /traveler
You must restart the HTTP server for the change to take effect: restart task http
