Defining passivation storage

Suggest edit
Updated on April 5, 2022

Pega Platform provides two passivation storage mechanisms: database and filesystem. The default passivation storage is database, which is most efficient and robust. You can override the default storage mechanism by setting the prconfig setting initialization/persistrequestor/storage to either database, filesystem, or custom.

Database passivation storage corresponds to the following prconfig.xml file setting:

<env name="initialization/persistrequestor/storage" value="database" />

With database storage, the passivation daemon saves requestor information as an instance of the System-Requestor-Context class, corresponding to the pr_sys_context database table. The daemon saves page details as an instance of the System-SavedPages class in the pr_page_store database table.

To save passivation details in filesystem storage instead of the database, add following setting to the prconfig.xml file. For more information on filesystem storage, see Shared filesystem storage.

<env name="initialization/persistrequestor/storage value="filesystem" />
