    how to configure MPING ip_ttl in wildfly

    Dieter Cailliau Newbie

      Since my move from AS 7.2.0 (with jgroups 3.2.7) to wildfly 8.1 (with jgroups 3.4.3), i'm unable to configure the ttl for mping via -Djgroups.mping.ip_ttl=10.


      With wireshark I see that the ttl is always set to 2 in wildfly 8.1 for these multicast packets.


      It is set to my value-of-choice in AS 7.2.0.


      Using JMX console to wildfly, I can see that the jgroups/protocol/"interserver"/MPING/ip_ttl is 2 - which is not equal to my -Djgroups.mping.ip_ttl=10 system property (also inspected in jmx).


      So that means wildfly is simply somehow overruling the -Djgroups.mping.ip_ttl system property, with a value 2 i did not configure.


      Where can i find information about that?




      I'm testing on a ubuntu machine with java 7:


      java -version

      java version "1.7.0_55"

      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.7) (7u55-2.4.7-1ubuntu1~

      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)

          You don't really want to configure this as command line parameter, you want it to be configured in the profile.


          Here is an XML snippet to do that:


          <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:jgroups:2.0" default-stack="tcp">
            <stack name="tcp">
            <transport type="TCP" socket-binding="jgroups-tcp"/>
            <protocol type="MPING" socket-binding="jgroups-mping"/>
                 <property name="ip_ttl">1</property>
