Meaning of "repeatedly" in job executor documentation


On this page:

It says (for “waitTimeInMillis”):

Specifies the wait time of the job acquisition thread in milliseconds in case there are less jobs available for execution than requested during acquisition. If this is repeatedly the case, the wait time is increased exponentially by the factor waitIncreaseFactor. The wait time is capped by maxWait.

What does “If this is repeatedly the case” really mean? Does this mean after only one time of having less jobs available, or is this some number more than once?


Hi Galen,

Wait time is increased every time when less jobs have been acquired than requested.


Thanks, just making sure!
