Client Connection Profiles
Starting with version 1.0.5 RPort comes with client connection profiles. The RPort client can be configured to connect to the RPort server using a specific connection profile. The connection profile defines a variety of timing and timeout parameters that the client uses to ensure successful connection to the server under a variety of network and server load conditions.
The following connection profiles are available:
The RPort client comes with a default connection profile called
"standard". This profile is also used if no
other profile is specified. The
"standard" profile is optimized for a reliable connection to the server. It uses a
longer timeouts and longer retry intervals. This profile is recommended for most use cases and matches the behavior
of the RPort client before version 1.0.5.
The RPort client comes with a built-in connection profile called
"fast". This profile is optimized for a fast
connection to the server. It uses shorter timeouts and retry intervals. This profile is recommended for
use cases where the client is connected to the server over a fast network connection and where the server is not
under very heavy load.
By default, the rport server uses the
"standard" client connection profile. To change the client connection profile
to use the fast profile, add the following to the
connection section of the
profile = "fast"
