WolfNet - Technical Question Regarding Data Access

  • retag add tags

Hi Everyone!

I am hoping you can help me with a technical question regarding data access across all MLSs that leverage your platform for data distribution.

Do you allow for multiple connections to be open at the same time when accessing data/photos? We are testing a new data/photo intake process that requires at least 2 concurrent connections and we want to be sure our assumption we will be able to maintain these connections holds true before we implement the changes across the 620+ MLSs from which we access data.

Let me know what questions you have and thank you in advance for your assistance!

Are you meaning multiple connections to the same MLS? Or, one connection per Multiple MLS' ?

We do support concurrent connections, however - if we tend to see a spike in our database hits that results in customer impact, we typically request to not utilize multiple connections in one MLS, that being said, there are definitely situations where it would be applicable to do so.

This would be for multiple connections per MLS/same MLS. I do not think we would spike anything, as we would be looking at 2-5 connections per MLS, most likely.

Just following up on this, as I understand it, multiple connections in one MLS is permissible?

I would suggest that you try to limit it to 2 active connections at a time if at all possible. This is especially important on the larger MLSs where the impact to performance could be more drastic. Also make sure to call logout or PHRETS Disconnect() when finished using the session.
