   It will usually handle no more than min(max server descriptors, max
client descriptors). In terms of performance, I don't know if 'to
handle' is a correctly chosen word. It depends heavily on whatever I/O
notification mechanism it uses, on both sides. The client/server
connection won't 'stop' at all, it's just that you won't be able to
open another paralel connection towards the server at some point.

If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
