We are going to be moving a www (and gopher) server to an HP/UX 10.01
system, running the apache httpd and the U of Minn gopherd.
I'm looking for advice on how to configure system or kernel
parameters so the system will degrade gracefully under high loads.
Other things I've read suggested raising the per user limit on
processes, and the total limit on open file discriptors.
(Though I could still use more specific advice on what
these are called under HPUX.)
I'm also interested in any other table sizes that relate
to total TCP connections. Our previous (Sun 4/Sparc) system
seemed sometimes to fill up with a large number of tcp connections
in the final wait after they had closed.
