Saturation Listener – Saturates the EIP with transactions, chosen randomly from the specified source directory. The Listener randomly selects the file from the specified source directory and uses it as input data.
Select Saturation Listener from the Listener Type drop down. There are 2 tabs: Basic and Advanced.
1. Basic: In the Basic tab, you can specify:
Source Directory: Specifies directory to poll transactions from. Note that network paths are not evaluated in the eiConsole.
Polling interval (ms): Specifies a time (in milliseconds) between each transaction.
2. Advanced: At the Advanced tab, you can specify:
Initialize on trigger only: If enabled, Listener doesn’t start up until a trigger initializes it.
Allow command-line invocation: If enabled, Listener can be invoked using the CLI client application.
Restart on listening error: If enabled, Listener will be restarted after an error occurs.
FIFO Queue Name: The FIFO stuff enables a “First In, First Out” queuing mechanism between Listeners and Transports. If a “FIFO Queue Name” is provided, that name will be used as a key for a queue Transactions & will be pushed into before reaching a transport. They’ll be ordered in this queue according to when the Listener created them.
FIFO Queue Delay: It is the interval between updates/checks against that queue. Providing a queue name guarantees that a given Transport sends transactions in the same order the Listener created them in.
