Configuring Keep-alive for Broker Server
Specifies the time interval in seconds for sending the keep-alive messages from Broker Server to the JMS client. Sending keep-alive messages in regular intervals helps in identifying dead connections.
This feature is very useful when you configure your messaging system in a wide area network. Set the value to 0 (zero) to disable the keep-alive feature. The default value is 60.
Specifies the number of keep-alive attempts. Broker Server assumes that the JMS client connection is down if the client fails to respond to all the consecutive keep-alive attempts. The default value is 1.
Specifies the time in seconds the Broker Server will wait for the client to reply to a keep-alive message sent. If the client does not respond to Broker Server's keep-live message within the keepAliveTimeout time, Broker Server times out the client connection. The default value is 60.
