Performance considerations
Because a stateless AppServer passes requests from connected clients to any available AppServer agent, the number of clients that a single AppServer instance can handle using this operating mode is relatively high. That is, a relatively small number of AppServer agents can support many client connections. If you never set connections to the bound state, a stateless AppServer can make maximum use of its available AppServer agent resources to handle client requests. This operating mode thus maximizes throughput for large numbers of clients, especially when they maintain short connections.
