connect.moduleconfig.syndication.inittasks
Indicates whether automatic syndication is enabled. This property should be set the same on both the syndicator and the subscriber. If set to "false" , automatic syndication is not enabled. If set to "true", automatic syndication is enabled.

Default value: 16

resourceserver.maxCacheObjectSize
Specifies the maximum size in kilobytes (KB) of resources to be cached by the resource server module.

Default value: 300

admin.delete.error.percent.threshold
The error percent threshold for a given type when deleting a library. This value is specified as an integer from 0 to 100. If the threshold level is reached for any type, the library deletion task is stopped.
Note: If the threshold is set to 100, the task ignores the error rate. If the threshold is set to an unsupported value, such as a value less than 0 or greater than 100, the threshold is set to the default value of 40 percent.

Default value: 40

deployment.subscriberOnly
Indicates whether this instance of HCL Web Content Manager will only be subscribed to by other servers and will never itself syndicate content to other servers. If this property is set to true, all item gatherers are deleted and the item changed task is not added to the scheduler. This improves performance and is recommended for production machines that are subscribe-only servers.

Default value: false

deployment.itemChangedTaskDelay
Specifies the number of seconds to use as the syndication interval, with a minimum of 0 seconds and a maximum of 65536 seconds. A value of 0 will prevent syndication from occurring. The shorter the interval, the sooner an update can be sent, but because frequent syndication can affect performance on servers with large amounts of content, a longer interval might be required.

Default value: 30

wcm.transaction.timeout
HCL Web Content Manager uses a default transaction timeout of 120 seconds even when the value is changed in the server.

Default value: 120
