in reply to Re: Re: fork processing limitations
in thread fork processing limitations

    My application should be able to (theoretically handle), accept thousounds of connections per hour while processing the data and writing the data to file(s)

Theoretically. YMMV depending on hardware and physical memory.

    where might I find the processing limitations?

You've caught me slightly off guard here. I don't have my Linux internals book handy. Just for grins I tried poking around with adb and had no success finding the right symbol to examine.

Maybe another PM has the info at their fingertips? I'm curious now...

    /etc/security/limits.conf? Try using grep to find processes in /etc.

      DOH! Forgot about that! I looked in the wrong place OBTW. I was looking around in /boot.

      DOH!

    Ok, if you didn't already notice I am a novice here at PerlMonks, could you educate me on what YMMV stands for?

      Your Milage May Vary. Meaning you can expect different results in different contexts.

        someone sent me a link to the jargon dictionary in the Chatterbox earlier on this topic, I have bookmarked the site (good reference)!
        Thanks
