  • Wierd Load Limiting

    I'm on a shared Unix server.

    I set my simultaenous sessions limit to 100
    My Unix Load Limit is 0.

    But when there are like 5 users logged on, they all experience this "Server is busy at the moment" error message. I don't see how 5 users can create 100 sessions.

    Can you explain how I can solve this problem or at least explain how simultaneous sessions is calculated?

    Another Problem:

    Ever so often, when I try to vote on a poll or do any moderator thingys (e.g. editing, deleted, sticking) I get a "your session is invalid". When I click the get new session link, usually I can perform that action, but sometimes I get back to the original page.

    I found that clearing my cookies helped for a while, but the problem resurfaced a day later.

    Oh, and I'm using cookies (in the vB options panel)

    Update: When I set it to 200 sessions, and there are 9 users logged on, my users still report "Server Is Busy At The Moment"

      what version of vB are you using ?

      can you post a link to your vB ?

      simultaneous sessions is guest + members not just members... so how many total users online to you get ?

      as to the poll issue, that error message is by design it's mention to pop up when your cookie is corrupted or expired/changed... just click the new session link

      are you by any chance with AOL for ISP ?

        um... still 9 in total

        and i'm not using AOL.

        This problem only occured recently (not sure exactly when).

        I'm using IE6 on WinXP

        The new session link doesn't work all of the time
