    Wildfly 8.2.0: How to configure worker threads in IO subsystem dynamically

    Umesh Kudale Newbie

      I want to dynamically configure following section in wildfly-8.2.0 in standalone.xml:

      <worker name="default" io-threads="100" task-max-threads="100"/>


      Basically I don't want these values to be hardcoded and calculate them at the time of server startup and pass them as jboss boot parameters. I did something like this:

      <worker name="default" io-threads="${my.io.threads:100}" task-max-threads="${my.task.max.threads:1000}"/>


      I am passing these parameters as -Dmy.io.threads and -Dmy.task.max.threads while starting wildfly server. But it's failing to parse standalone.xml with following exception:

      I have read that IO subsystem doesn't support expressions. Is there any other way to achieve this? Is there any internal parameter which when passed at boot time would override these values?
