Performance & Scalability

  • Run the CLIENT process as a Pathway Server Class. See CLIENT Process Configuration.
    • The CLIENT process does not use TMF. Set the SERVER TMF option to OFF.
    • Configure other server class options as you would any other context-sensitive server class to accommodate the application load.
    • Use the SERVER STARTUP option to configure a startup command file, which allows the startup options to be changed without re-configuring the server class.
  • Use configuration files to specify logging options, which allows the options to be changed without re-configuring the server class. See Using Configuration Files.
  • Use the monitor option where appropriate, to monitor changes to configuration files. See monitor.
  • Do not use diagnostic logging in performance sensitive environments unless absolutely necessary.
  • When using TLS connections with HTTP Basic authentication, use the pre-auth option. See http-credentials.
  • If parameters in an API definition change between development, test, certification, and production environments, consider using API Parameters when defining the API. See Working with API Parameters.

Security

  • Use TLS connections whenever possible, both when accessing REST applications and accessing the LightWave Client Console.
  • Use the sensitive schema property to avoid disclosing sensitive data in logs. See Sensitive Data Masking.
  • Use credentials files to supply configuration credentials. See Using Credentials Files
  • Use Guardian security to appropriately secure API, configuration, credential, and program files.
  • Only install the Console in production environments when necessary, or only run the Console in production when necessary.
    • The Console is generally not necessary outside of the development environment.
    • Not installing it will reduce the system's attack surface.
  • No labels
