The purpose of this RFC is to support a way to limit the # of concurrent FDO connections to a specific provider. By allowing for a limit to the # of concurrent FDO connections the server can support single threaded providers and any provider that has a limit on the # of client connections (ie: Oracle, etc...).


Currently, the server only supports FDO providers that support a thread-per-connection or better thread model. Although not ideal there is no support for single-threaded providers or for restriction the # of concurrent FDO connections. This needs to be addressed.

Proposed Solution

The server will be modified to allow for a way to specify a default maximum # of concurrent FDO provider connections and for a way to specify a specific # of concurrent FDO provider connections for a specific provider.

# DataConnectionMaxConcurrent          Default # of allowed FDO connections per provider
#                                      0 < Value <= 100
# DataConnectionMaxConcurrentCustom    Custom # of allowed FDO connections for specified provider
#                                      0 <= Value <= 1024
#                                      Example: OSGeo.SDF:10,OSGeo.SHP:10
DataConnectionMaxConcurrent        = 20
DataConnectionMaxConcurrentCustom  = OSGeo.SDF:10

The server will also check the thread model supported by the underlying FDO provider and if it is single-threaded then the maximum # of concurrent FDO provider connections will be limited to 1 regardless of the above settings.


Test Plan

Test concurrent access to various FDO providers. Test single threaded FDO provider, example GDAL.
