Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198931
Exceeding number of connections to X server
Last modified: 2008-04-11 11:47:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Our custom software suite is exceeding the maximum number of connections allowed
to the RHEL 4 XOrg X11 server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 250+ applications accessing a single X11 server
Xlib: connection to "my_server:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Maximum number of clients reached
We have a complex silmulation from 100s of processes accessing a single 6 headed
computer display and we would need to open up at least 500 connections to the X
server to meet our requirement. We would like the maximum number of connections
allowed to be configurable on the X-Server.
Hardware config for X-Server machine is HP XW8200 3.8GHz Xeon with 1GB RAM
This was fixed in RHEL 4.6, in xorg-x11 6.8.2-1.EL.25 and later.
