Not quite sure which of the many config options I should be using:
I'm using the Java Web proxy in Reverse proxy mode to to layer 7 URI inspection to parse out requests to one of 3 custom applications. One of those apps occasionally breaks, but doesn't fall over and therefore still accepts incoming requests. The proxy continues to open connections to that bad app server, filling up the pool and preventing connections to our other application servers from getting through.
I don't want to raise the connection pool, but basically want to close out all open requests to the fallen app server after say, 5 seconds. 5 seconds is plenty of time for a functional back-end app server to finish processing the request, so we're ok with the short time. We just need to close out all of the open connections to servers that will not return anything.
