Integration Broker Overview and Tuning

Internal Processes:

PSBRKDSP – Message Broker Dispatcher
PSBRKHND – Message Broker Handler

PSPUBDSP – Publication Contract Dispatcher
PSPUBHND – Publication Contract Handler

PSSUBDSP – Subscription Contract Dispatcher
PSSUBHND – Subscription Contract Handler

Dispatchers

  • Determine the queue order of messages and send them to handlers.
  • Uses Tuxedo queueing.
  • Queued Tuxedo requests is a key indicator of how you should configure your dispatchers and handlers.
  • Sends Tuxedo requests to Handlers

Handlers

  • Handlers process the Tuxedo Request(s) from the dispatcher
  • The more handlers you have, the more concurrent processing you can have
    • More handlers means more system resources.
    • Depending on the type of handler (CI vs. simple notification)
      • For CI: it might be better to have fewer handlers (3-5) because of the processing overhead
      • For simple notifications more handlers would be better

Broker Processes

Broker Processes route messages to the subscription and publication queues.

PSBRKDSP

  • Uses the table PSAPMSGPUBHDR
  • Builds in-memory Tuxedo Queues
  • If sitting idle longer than “scan interval rate” it will recheck the queues/table for new messages
  • If the actual PeopleCode Publish from a PSAPPSRV is not in the same domain as these pub/sub servers, a Tuxedo request will not get queued for this dispatcher. On-Idle processing is the only way to pick up this published message. Therefore, if you configure these pub/sub servers as stand-alone (i.e. on a different machine then where the PIA domains are configured), you should set the scan interval to 1 in order to pick up these requests as soon as possible

PSBRKHND

  • Determines the appropriate routing
  • Executes the OnRouteSend() and OnRouteReceive() PeopleCode Events
  • Performs Inbound Transformations
  • Updates PUB or SUB Contract Queues
  • Routings and OnRoute*() events are usually lightweight so if physical resources are a problem you can safely reduce the number of these processes without impacting performance

Publication Contractors

Publication contractors take the information submitted by the Message Broker processes and perform an HTTP post of the message to the Integration Broker Gateway (PSIGW) servlet.

PSPUBDSP

  • Uses the table PSAPMSGPUBCON
  • Builds in-memory Tuxedo Queues
  • If sitting idle longer than “scan interval rate” it will recheck the queues/table for new messages
  • Will attempt to ping nodes that have messages in “RETRY” status by looking up PSNODESDOWN

PSPUBHND

  • Performs the actual HTTP request to the Integration Broker Gateway
  • Executes OnSend() OnAckReceive() PeopleCode Events
  • Executes Outbound Transformations
  • The handler will wait for a response from the IB Gateway before it will continue processing. This could be up to 3 minutes based on the HTTP timeout configuration setting

Subscription Contractors

Subscription contractors are reactive. They process integration broker notification events

PSSUBDSP

  • Uses the table PSAPMSGPUBCON
  • Builds in-memory Tuxedo Queues
  • If sitting idle longer than “scan interval rate” it will recheck the queues/table for new messages

PSSUBHND

  • Runs handler PeopleCode
