Abstract

This disclosed is system for comminication gateway to reduce an application timeout rate and makes the communication stable. In some cases, data processing time isn't enough against the data incomming speed. This disclosed controls the acknowledge inteval to received the proper volumes of data on a gateway server. A data flow volume control is made on a gateway server. Prerequisite communication model is showed below(Figure 1) . Many applications send data to a destination system (Host) via a gateway server simultaneously. The data is divided to small peaces and each data requires an acknouledgement and the application send the next data after the acknowledge is received. An application waits a result from destication system with timer after the application sends the last data. The gateway server receives the devided data and it may unblock and modify the data and send it to the destination system. The gateway server doesn't wait the each acknowledgement of the data.
