Managing requestor pools
Requestor pools are sets of requestors that are dedicated to processing incoming service requests from a specific service package. Use Admin Studio, to manage requestor pools to tune the requestor pool configuration and efficiently manage the resources to improve the performance of services.
You can view and group a list of all of the available requestor pools across the whole cluster, on the current node, or other nodes in the cluster (remote nodes). You can view basic requestor pool metrics, check the configured sizes of the pools, and clear a requestor pool for a specific service package.
On the Requestor Pool Management landing page, you can review the status of requestor pools, and perform the following actions:
- Clear a requestor pool.
- View details about a requestor pool.
Refresh metrics about requestor pools.
Open a service package form to edit the thresholds for a requestor pool.
- To edit requestor pool values, see Configuring a requestor pool for a service package.
- For best practices when editing requestor pool size, see Requestor pooling for services.

- Requestor pooling for services
A requestor pool is a set of requestors that are reserved for use by the services in a specific service package. Requestor pooling often improves the performance of a service because requestors are reused, their allocated resources are shared, and the service need not wait for a requestor to be created.
- Tuning a requestor pool configuration
By using the Requestor Pools landing page, you can tune requestor pool configuration to ensure the most effective use of system resources. For example, you can resize a requestor pool to adapt to incoming demand on requestors.
