Connection-mode

Each peer object specifies a connection mode which is used to determine if a connection can be reused or if a new connection should be created. Possible connection modes are:
  • per-peer: When a message is routed to a peer with per-peer connection mode, any connection on any TMM with the correct instance number may be used for delivering the message.
  • per-blade: When a message is routed to a peer with per-blade connection mode, only connections on the current blade with the correct instance number may be used for delivering the message.
  • per-tmm: When a message is routed to a peer with per-tmm connection mode, only connections on the current tmm with the correct instance number may be used for delivering the message.
  • per-client: When a message is route to a peer with per-client connection mode, an outgoing connection will be created for exclusive use by the originating connection. The outgoing connection will not be usable for delivering messages from other connections. Any message received (request or response) on the created outgoing connection will be automatically delivered to the originating connection that owns the outgoing connection.
