Understanding the "connect retries per host" and ""connect retries" properties.

Let's imagine the situation that I have:

number of solace hosts: 3

connect retries: 2

connect retries per host: 4

What would be the final number of retries, if it would be 24, like 2 x 4 per host? Or how it would work?

    Thank you, definitely example is very good and explains everything. Haven't reached it during the first attempt by reading the doc.

    number of solace hosts: 3

    connect retries: 2

    connect retries per host: 4

    If you have brokers A, B, and C. I think it should do:

    AAAABBBBCCCCAAAABBBBCCCC done.

    Right?

    p.s. why do you have 3 hosts??

    At least I got the different from a doc.

    AAAA BBBB CCCC  - the first try

    AAAA BBBB CCCC - the first retry

    AAAA BBBB CCCC - the second retry

    In total I expect: AAAABBBBCCCCAAAABBBBCCCCAAAABBBBCCCC

    P.S. I don't have 3 hosts, it was just an example to understand how it works

    @b1102 the above looks correct. I think it differs from @Aaron 's example because Aaron left out the initial connect tries.

    That's what I get for not testing it myself and going from memory! 😓 Either way, none of us are correct. I just tested with JCSMP 10.19. With the above settings, you get:

    AAAAA BBBBB CCCCC AAAAA BBBBB CCCCC

    Retries per host = 1 attempt + number of retries. So 4 means 5 attempts in a row.

    Then Connect Retries = total number of loops.

    So my results don't line up with the docs, @amackenzie..!

    JCSMP Channel Properties setting:

    channelProps.setConnectRetriesPerHost(4);
    channelProps.setConnectRetries(2);
    

    Configured 3 hosts, with an invalid VPN name for testing purposes:

    Note, it appears that channelProps.setConnectRetries(0); and channelProps.setConnectRetries(1); behave the same way in JCSMP... that is: one time through the host list.

    Maybe it's different for C, .NET, JS..?
