Hi Chi, list

Thank you!
Great information!

Yes, I read that thread while it was going on,
but I was just too lazy to search for it on the Torque list archives.

Thank you also for the information relating PBS_NET_MAX_CONNECTIONS=1024
to the maximum number of sockets, select(), etc.
I guessed there was some system related limit there, but didn't know 
which/where to find it.

In any case, according to answers on that thread, one can have more than
1024 pbs_moms running.
However, it is unclear to me how this will
work with the 1024 limit on open sockets/connections.

What happens if more than 1024 pbs_moms try to connect to the pbs_server?
Do some of them wait on a queue, or are they simply dropped,
and keep trying until the server has available connections?

Thank you,
Gus Correa
