maintainer_pool — associate a pool of event loops with mail queues, DNS lookup, and module events to use multiple threads


maintainer_pool = "pool_name"



To use this option, you must have a Supercharger license.

This option is used in a multiple event loop configuration. To configure threading for mail queues, DNS lookup, and module events, assign maintainer_pool the name of your eventloop. Note that the name must match what was defined in the EventLoop configuration. See eventloop.

For an example multiple event loop configuration, see Configuring Multiple Event Loops .


If you change the value of maintainer_pool at runtime, you must restart the ecelerity process using the executable command ec_ctl. Note: issuing the ec_console command config reload will not work.

There is no default value for this option.


maintainer_pool is valid in the global scope.
