What steps would I need to take in order to obtain 75,000 concurrent TCP
sessions on a FreeBSD 5.2 system running on the following hardware:
dual xenon 3ghz 1mb cache processors
2 gigs of memory
two dual port fibre gigabit nic's
1 onboard copper 10/100 nic
I read a post that was sent to freebsd-hackers, which mentioned an
individual was able to obtain 1.6 million concurrent tcp sessions, so I
assume it's possible.
My goal is to setup a server, which is capable of accepting at least 75k tcp
connections to perform some firewall stress tests at work. Given that
information on this subject is quite scarce, I thought I'd post this
question and see what type of response I get back.
Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
