Java.nio setting the socket channel output buffer size

Hello,
Is there a way to set the output buffer size of a SocketChannel from within java or is this something controlled on the OS side of things?

Cheers,
Rick

Why do you want to do this? There has to be a work-around, like sending not more than a certain fixed length of data everytime. The size should ideally not be fixed because the socket can be used for any type of communication, e.g., making an HTTP request and reading the contents of a web-page, in which case the number of bytes that you read could be anything.

mayankeagle,
   I want to do this because I have written a mail feeder that utilizes the SMTP protocol. To get the rate of speed required I need to use the java.nio package... and for the most part this works extremely efficiently. But when the size of the email body gets to be 9k or greater, nio cannot write the whole chunk of data at once to the socket channel. Because of this I have a while loop which executes until all of the data was written. When I do this however, the performance degrades horribly for larger email sizes. My thinking is that if I can perform a calculation to figure out the optimal size of the output buffer, and then set the size on a per campaign basis I can minimize the degradation and get a more constant line of performance.

The effect you mention may not be influencable by altering the buffer size, even if you could. It could be caused by network effects

CEHJ,
I'm pretty sure that the network is not the issue... the test equipment is a dual xeon box, with a dedicated 100mb lan, all top of the line hardware. The problem is definitely occurring on the box as opposed to network traffic.

Use a Selector as I mentioned in your previous question.

>>What wont help? The selector?

Yes. If you have a blockage *writing* to a Socket it's not likely to help if it's that data not being pushed over the wire that's your concern (which i seem to remember is the case)

richardsimnettAuthor Commented:
You are right about this. The problem isnt with the wire however, its writing the entire 9k or greater at once to the socket channel. if it overflows the buffer I now have a while loop just waiting until its ready to go.  I have a few thoughts about a different way of approaching the problem that I think may be work well assuming certain limitations can be overcome.

The idea is to check the available size of the output buffer for the socket channel prior to attempting the write. If the space is available then write all the data, if not wait until the next cycle of the thread, if the space is available then write the data, etc, and this will happen indefinitely until the write occurs.
   Now there is one major problem with this approach that I see. First, if the amount of data is always going to be greater than the output buffer then the thread will not accomplish anything.
That is why I need to be able to set the socket channel output size. I seem to recall reading something about using properties classes within java to set things like that, but I have not yet figured out how the properties classes work exactly so that is an option that may or may not come to fruition.

What are your thoughts?

Cheers,
Rick

CEHJ,
Just another thought.... Its hard to believe that its not possible to set the sendbuffersize, as you can do so with a normal java socket method setSendBufferSize(int size) . There's got to be a way to accomplish this. Its just a matter of tracking it down at this point.

Cheers,
Rick Simnett

you don't need to set the buffer size.

CEHJ,
Do you think it is somehow possbile to grab an instance of the socket from the socketchannel (using the socket() method in socketchannel), and directly change the settings?

objects,
why do u say I do not need to set the buffersize? I think that is the best solution at this time, short of a complete rewrite of the code. Which is not something I definitely dont want to do....

if u want use nio then you need to understand about selectors.
unless cehj has any better suggestions which does not appear to be the case.

Objects / CEHJ,

Here is the complete code of the mail feeder app I have written. As it is I do not use any selectors, everything works great with exception of large email sizes. Its extremely fast, and works 100% except for this problem. The big performance issue is found in the sockConn class, in the writeln method. As you can see I am looping until the write is complete. I think if i can just get the buffer bigger the speed will be normal for larger emails. Basically, a 1.5k email I can deliver at
rates of 37,000 emails a minute. But when you jump up to 9k, the number of deliveries per minute is less than 1000, and the bottleneck is that while loop. If I can somehow make the buffer larger the looping will be minimized. I know this is a very long post, and I apologize for it, but I want you guys to reallly see what I am working with here.... In a way I have almost emulated selectors with the getstatus function in sockConn.

Let me know what you think I should do.

Cheers,
Rick


// MPFEEDER Class main class
//MailPro Delivery Feeder
//Scope: The MailPro Delivery Feeder is a stand-alone application that generates and transmits
//email at very high rates. The requiring is the algorithm that must be followed, and the pre-planned
//solutions.

//1.Initialize
//2.Query SQL Database for appropriate record.
//3.Set the records status.
//4.Loop
//5.Generate The Email
//6.Push the rendered email to storage.
//7.Push the email to the MTA.
//8.End Loop
/*
Required Classes:

      Storage Classes:

             Campaign Class - the campaign class is the most basic class for any outgoing campaign.
             It stores the complete campaign record from the database. It is responsible for the
             rendering of all outgoing email.

             Email Holder Class - the email holder class basically holds each of the "rendered" email
             messages for the delivery thread to pick up and deliver. It can hold X amount of messages,
             each message stored can be retrieved, or deleted by its reference number.

             Config Class - the config class holds the basic running values of the MailPro Feeder. These
             values are loaded from the SQL database. The data includes the number of delivery threads,
             MTA IP's and port configurations. In addition to this it will read from a base db.dat config
             file on startup, this file contains the database configuration and access information.

      Interface Classes:

             Database Class - communicates with the database server. Must open connection on start up
             and query the configuration and campaign information. IN addition to this it must have
             functions to run queries, and return datasets.

             Connection Class - manages connections to the MTA. It provides port status, as well as
             read / write abilities, it opens the ports and closes the ports. It also detects the type
             of MTA it is connected to (SMTP / PMM).

             SMTP Class - works with Connection class and delivery thread to provide an smtp interface
             for delivery.

             PMM Class - works with connection class and delivery thread to provide an PMTA mail merge
             interface.

             Recipients Class - an interface to provide row by row data to the render thread. In addition,
             to its primary role it provides status of the data... ie done status to the rest of the program.

       Worker Threads:

             Render Thread - based on the status of the email holder class (does the holder class have
             any open containers) the render class pulls the email body, and header information from the
             campaign class, the next recipients database row and renders the final outgoing mailpiece
             and dumps it to the email holder class.

             Delivery Thread - the delivery thread works with the connection class and the email holder. It
             rapidly checks the status of each connection in a round robin type of manner. If the connection
             reports that it is ready it will work with the email holder class and the set protocol interface
             for the port to send each email through to the mta. Once the given message is complete it deletes
             it from the email holder.

> As you can see I am looping until the write is complete.

So effectively you are defeating the purpose of nio, and are blocking until write is complete.

for larger sized emails yes... smaller size emails have no problem whatsoever... thats why i am so adamant about the buffersize.

According to that logic anyone using nio would need increase their buffer size to a value greater than the maximum amount of data that could be sent to it.

objects,
I'm not trying to defeat nio, i am simply trying to work around an inherent flaw in the program design. I'm aware of this problem, I just do not want to commit to a major rewrite of the sending side of the software.... I'm paid as a freelancer, and have already run over time alottment on this process as I initially started with coldfusion as the solution. Now I have merged the two, so that coldfusion populates the tables that this app uses.

Cheers,
Rick

The output buffer size may be a factor related to the problem you're experiencing without being the reason for it. Personally i would perform an experiment: write a *single-threaded* test harness that writes a 'bad-sized' amount of data to the output stream, reproducing the current code as closely as possible and let us know what happens.

btw, are you able to post links to code?

CEHJ,
Ill do that and see what happens. Yes I can post links to code. I will do that from now on, as opposed to pasting code directly into the forum.

Good idea. If you can post a link to the above, i'll get it deleted from this thread

Please define as a normal link for me... the link above looks pretty normal to me. ;-)
