Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Changes the behaviour of SSL session resumtion.


Specifies the number of resumable SSL sessions that will be cached on the server.

SSL session resumption greatly improves performance when the Notes HTTP Client or server is using SSL, and may have a minor (positive) effect on other "Internet" protocols as well.

The default number of resumable sessions that will be cached on the server is 50. To modify the number of sessions cached, set the SSL_RESUMABLE_SESSIONS NOTES.INI variable to the desired number. Setting SSL_RESUMABLE_SESSIONS=1 will disable SSL session resumption on the server.

Currently, the number of resumable sessions will not dynamically climb to match the server SSL load, and there is currently no means of configuring sessions to time out and expire.

The default starting size of each cached session can be configured with the SSL_SESSION_SIZE NOTES.INI variable. Increasing the size of this variable will result in a lower incidence of elements being reallocated on the fly in order to hold large X.509 client certificates, but will also consume more memory.

Default value:

SSL_Resumable_Sessions=number of sessions cached


UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
