Sample 372: Use of Concurrency Throttling and Request Rate Based Throttling

Showcase how to use the concurrency throttling in conjunction with request rate throttling


  • Deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService in the sample Axis2 server and start Axis2
  • Start Synapse using the configuration numbered 372 (repository/conf/sample/synapse_sample_372.xml)
    Unix/Linux: sh -sample 372
    Windows: synapse.bat -sample 372

Executing the Client

This is a combination of sample 370 and sample 371. In this case the throttle policy is loaded from the 'throttle_policy.xml' file which is fetched from the registry. To verify the functionality, it requires running a load test. The all enabled request from the concurrency throttling will be controlled by the access rate base throttling according to the policy.

Run the client as follows.

ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuoteProxy

You will get same results as in sample 371. If you run the load test, results will be different due to the effect of concurrency throttling.
