icm/min_threadsLocate this document in the navigation structure


This parameter specifies the minimum number of threads in the ICM.

This number is the same as the number of simultaneously running connections that can be processed. The value for the minimum number of threads is created at ICM startup and also applies during runtime.


If the network load for the ICM/Web Dispatcher becomes too much, it automatically starts more threads, up until the set limit set by icm/max_threads is reached. If the network load becomes lighter again, the number of threads is reduced.
