Configuration considerations for EP Start up and Shut down

When EPs start, they start a NodeService thread for each monitored server. Prior to v6.1.2.1, NodeService threads were started, and stopped, serially at EP startup and shutdown. If you’re running ICC v6.1.2.1, or later, EPs are configured, by default, to start and stop multiple NodeService threads in parallel at EP startup and shutdown. This behavior is controlled by the following two engine properties:

    Default value: True


    Default value: Number of CPUs IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor ascertains the server it runs on has

Unless you configure the system otherwise, NodeService threads will be started and stopped in parallel as of v6.1.2.1.

For faster EP startup and shutdown times, it is not advisable to change these default values.
