ssl_lock_method — the SSL lock method


ssl_lock_method = "mutex"


This option specifies the SSL lock method. Legal values for this option are mutex, spinlock and default. This option should be changed in consultation with messagesystems support only if SSL performance issues are encountered with the default method.

Changing the value of this option at runtime requires restarting the ecelerity process—issuing the ec_console command config reload will not suffice.

As of version 3.0.17, the default value for this option is mutex.


ssl_lock_method is valid in the global scope.
