Maximum Request Processors


Indicates the maximum number of request processors (RPs) that can be active at a time. This is roughly equivalent to the number of simultaneous requests that can be handled by the server. The maximum number of RPs the server should have available is dependent on the number of concurrent requests the server must handle and the system load.

Additional RPs will not be started dynamically based on the request wait timeout configuration value or procedurally using the STRWWWRP command once this value is reached. If an RP is not available to process a request it will be rejected by the server in timeout seconds.


The maximum number of request processors. This must be a value between 1 and 9999.
