I am building a news server on a SparcServer 20 running Solaris 2.5.
We currently have nearly 10000 customers accessing our system. If
anyone has had experience with a similar situation, I would appreciate
it a great deal if the following questions could be considered:
What news server applications are recommended? We currently run INN
on our news systems, but are curious if there is a better or more
recommended solution. If INN is recommended, what is the most stable,
feature rich version?
What determines the number of sockets that the news server application
allows users to connect to. This is probably just a function of the
operating system itself, but I am unsure.
Any other advice is greatly appreciated.
