Frontier client retry strategy

Line: 40 to 40
  • PROXY1+SERVER2: server error, no more servers so go back to the beginning of the server list and try next proxy
To avoid that situation, if the server list has been set back to its beginning by a server error while in a given proxy group since the last 5-minute full reset, do not try to start again at the beginning of that proxy group even if the strategy calls for it.
When there are no proxies in use either because they weren't configured or they all failed and the client directly connects to the server, the host names listed in serverurls also get resolved in the DNS like proxies, and most of the same load balancing and retry logic is applied to them directly where it makes sense; the same code is reused.

Older client version differences

Frontier clients prior to version 2.8.2 (June 2011) are not documented on this page.
