    user limitations

    Gene Rosenthal Newbie

      Forgive my explaination as I am new to jboss and not too web server savvy. My question is, in An apache to tomcat to jboss to sybase configuration. What are my limitations for user connections? I believe apache can serve 150 users with the default configuration ( httpd.conf ) and tomcat can handle "x" maxconnections based on the setting in jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml. So is this stating that
      I can only have 150 connections to my application based on apache parameters? At the same time, sybase has a user connection limitation. If i allow for 1000 user connections to sybase and specify 1000 maxconnections in the jboss-server.xml could or "would" i do the same in apache? How's this all work?

          To get a clearer picture here's how things are configured.

          Users hit a content switch that round robbins to 3 redhat servers each running apache web server. Those web servers reference another machine running 1 instance of jboss which has the maxconnections set to 1000 in the jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml. This instance of jboss points to another server running Sybase dataserver.

          How many simultaneous users will this handle?

          Thanks !
