SubjectRe: How to increat [sic.] max open files?
mud.arctic.org when running on a sparc 1 w/sunos 4.1.4 (think ... really
slow) reliably handled 170 players active at the same time. Stop arguing
that "because I've never seen an app like that one doesn't exist". A
sparc 1 is nothing compared to a ppro or any other recent chip. Initial
estimates on a dual p133 show that the Arctic code will handle 500 players
before maxing a single cpu.
