Server properties

The server configuration properties for Spotfire Statistics Services are contained in the file spserver.properties. We use the standard Java properties file conventions to define each server property.

Note: Database properties are separate from the server configuration, therefore they are stored in the file database.properties. For more information about the startup time property file database.properties, see Database properties.
  • In a cluster installation, the file spserver.properties is stored in the conf directory under SPSERVER_SHARE. When you install a new node in a cluster, provide this location so that all the nodes in the cluster have the same values.
  • In a standalone installation, the file is stored in the conf directory under SPSERVER_HOME.

In a default installation, the full path to the spserver.properties file is:

Windows Spotfire Statistics Services: C:\Program Files\TIBCO\statsvcs711\<service_name>\conf
UNIX/Linux /opt/TIBCO/statsvcs711/<service_name>/conf
Note: Not every server property documented in the reference is included in the default version of spserver.properties. To include a property listed below in your configuration, manually insert the property into your spserver.properties file.
Note: You must restart the Spotfire Statistics Services service to pick up any changes that you make in the spserver.properties file. When you restart the Spotfire Statistics Services service, the server resumes processing queued jobs. However, because restarting the Spotfire Statistics Services service also stops the pool of engines, any job that has not completed is marked as failed. To prevent this, we recommend that you wait until all jobs have completed before you restart the service. Alternatively, you can resubmit failed jobs after restarting the service. To monitor job status, use the jobs function. For more information about the jobs function, see the URL API documentation, available from the Spotfire Statistics Services landing page.
