Hi all,

In the "Deployment Guide" document's "General Service Tuning" section, it mentions a parameter called max_clients. In the conf files presented in several other documents I haven't seen any parameter called max_clients. However there is a parameter called "max connections", are these two parameters the same? Otherwise, what are the differences?

Thanks a lot

Hi Birben,

i've never seen max_connections, maybe a deprecated option? However if you're not sure with configuration options a good place is to look into the github repo.

# Use an integer to override the number of pre-forked processes that will
# accept connections. Should default to the number of effective cpu
# cores in the system. It's worth noting that individual workers will
# use many eventlet co-routines to service multiple concurrent requests.
# workers = auto
# Maximum concurrent requests per worker
# max_clients = 1024

Cheers Heiko
