String

The name for this configuration. Connectors reference the configuration with this name.

Expiration Policy

ExpirationPolicy

Configures the minimum amount of time that a dynamic configuration instance can remain idle before the runtime considers it eligible for expiration. This does not mean that the platform expires the instance at the exact moment that it becomes eligible. The runtime actually purges the instances as it sees fit.

Reconnection Type

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Fails Deployment

Boolean

When the application is deployed, a connectivity test is performed on all connectors. If set to true, deployment fails if the test doesn’t pass after exhausting the associated reconnection strategy

Reconnection Strategy

  • Reconnect

  • Reconnect Forever

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Frequency

Number

How often (in ms) to reconnect

Count

Number

How many reconnection attempts to make

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Pooling Profile Type

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Max Active

Number

Controls the maximum number of Mule components that can be borrowed from a session at one time. When set to a negative value, there is no limit to the number of components that may be active at one time. When maxActive is exceeded, the pool is said to be exhausted.

Max Idle

Number

Controls the maximum number of Mule components that can sit idle in the pool at any time. When set to a negative value, there is no limit to the number of Mule components that may be idle at one time.

Max Wait

Number

Specifies the number of milliseconds to wait for a pooled component to become available when the pool is exhausted and the exhaustedAction is set to WHEN_EXHAUSTED_WAIT.

Min Eviction Millis

Number

Determines the minimum amount of time an object may sit idle in the pool before it is eligible for eviction. When non-positive, no objects will be evicted from the pool due to idle time alone.

Eviction Check Interval Millis

Number

Specifies the number of milliseconds between runs of the object evictor. When non-positive, no object evictor is executed.

Exhausted Action

Enumeration, one of:

  • WHEN_EXHAUSTED_GROW

  • WHEN_EXHAUSTED_WAIT

  • WHEN_EXHAUSTED_FAIL

Specifies the behavior of the Mule component pool when the pool is exhausted. Possible values are: "WHEN_EXHAUSTED_FAIL", which will throw a NoSuchElementException, "WHEN_EXHAUSTED_WAIT", which will block by invoking Object.wait(long) until a new or idle object is available, or WHEN_EXHAUSTED_GROW, which will create a new Mule instance and return it, essentially making maxActive meaningless. If a positive maxWait value is supplied, it will block for at most that many milliseconds, after which a NoSuchElementException will be thrown. If maxThreadWait is a negative value, it will block indefinitely.

Initialisation Policy

Enumeration, one of:

  • INITIALISE_NONE

  • INITIALISE_ONE

  • INITIALISE_ALL

Determines how components in a pool should be initialized. The possible values are: INITIALISE_NONE (will not load any components into the pool on startup), INITIALISE_ONE (will load one initial component into the pool on startup), or INITIALISE_ALL (will load all components in the pool on startup)

Disabled

Boolean

Whether pooling should be disabled

Expiration Policy Type

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Max Idle Time

Number

A scalar time value for the maximum amount of time a dynamic configuration instance should be allowed to be idle before it’s considered eligible for expiration

Time Unit

Enumeration, one of:

  • NANOSECONDS

  • MICROSECONDS

  • MILLISECONDS

  • SECONDS

  • MINUTES

  • HOURS

  • DAYS

A time unit that qualifies the maxIdleTime attribute

Repeatable In Memory Iterable Type

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Initial Buffer Size

Number

This is the amount of instances that will be initially be allowed to be kept in memory in order to consume the stream and provide random access to it. If the stream contains more data than can fit into this buffer, then it will be expanded according to the bufferSizeIncrement attribute, with an upper limit of maxInMemorySize. Default value is 100 instances.

Buffer Size Increment

Number

This is by how much will the buffer size expands if it exceeds its initial size. Setting a value of zero or lower will mean that the buffer should not expand, meaning that a STREAM_MAXIMUM_SIZE_EXCEEDED error will be raised when the buffer gets full. Default value is 100 instances.

Max Buffer Size

Number

This is the maximum amount of memory that will be used. If more than that is used then a STREAM_MAXIMUM_SIZE_EXCEEDED error will be raised. A value lower or equal to zero means no limit.

Repeatable File Store Iterable Type

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Max In Memory Size

Number

This is the maximum amount of instances that will be kept in memory. If more than that is required, then it will start to buffer the content on disk.

Buffer Unit

Enumeration, one of:

  • BYTE

  • KB

  • MB

  • GB

The unit in which maxInMemorySize is expressed
