Parameter documentation

The dispatch of update requests occurs after a very simple procedure: Each application server leads a list of active update servers and their configured update work processes. Every update server with the relevant content are assigned the update requests dynamically (see parameter rdisp/vb_context or rdisp/vb2_context). An update work process is assigned to all update work processes in a disptach cycle. It is switched to the update server after every assignment. This means, within a dispatch cycle a server is assigned as many VB requests as update work processes are assigned for it. This parameter lets you determine the number of update work processes relevant for dispatching, for example, to assign more VB requests to faster servers. This number is determined by the current number of update processes and the value of rdisp/vb_factor. After processing the U1 update requests, the U2 part is dispatched.
