[LDM #YUR-908608]: thinking of bumping our $max_clients



Holly,

I don't understand how products get to your HTTP server. Is the HTTP server on 
host Ldmout? If not, how does it get the products. Is an LDM running on the 
HTTP server host and does it request products from Ldmout?

If the answer to the last question is yes, then increasing the $max_clients 
parameter would be a possible solution. What is its value now? How loaded is 
Ldmout?
