maximum number of client connections?

We have the situation where it would be convenient if we
could support a large number (>1024, possibly in the 2000-3000
range) of client connections.

What are our options for this?

Many TIA,

I suspect your best bet is some sort of connection pooling. Even if
you got PostgreSQL to compile with that many clients, each client
requires a separate backend process so you would have to make sure
that your OS and hardware wouldn't choke when running that many

I'd start by looking at SQL Relay. It seems to rate pretty well on
Freshmeat and seems to have ongoing development.

There's also dbBalancer. It's supposed to handle native PostgreSQL
pooling but unfortunately it's still listed as "alpha" and no updates
have been posted in about a year so it may be dead.

If you can add a layer to your app you could try aolserver. It's
high-performance, open-source and supports connection pooling
out-of-the-box but would require communicating from the client side
via http.

There's also the connection pooling available in Java.

All of this pooling talk assumes, of course, that your clients aren't
so active that the pool of "real" connections becomes exhausted.

Just a few places to look. Others may have ideas as well.

I have a Back End database (split) that is on a smokin' hot machine (dual processor, 2 gig RAM, XP Pro SP2) and I'm getting an error that says the database (back end file) is "opened exclusively" by someone else. I looked at the number of sessions and noticed that when the number of sessions were at 10, any new user launching the front end would get the "exclusive" error message. There is no security in place and no login required.

Hi, I`m using apache as a proxy to solve cross domain security restriction of javascript. The client sends AJAX requests to a JAVA based jabber server and the Apache serves as a proxy so the javascript and the jabber server will think they are in the same domain. The jabber server works as follows (http-binding): It gets an 'update' AJAX request from the client but keep the connection open until it has a new message for the client. Then...
