Safe Value for Number of Children and Max Consoles per Child

Howdy All,

I'm using conserver to connect to consoles on our Annex Terminal Servers, well 
I'm having a bit of math problem.

We have 13 terminal servers with 64 ports each, that's 832 ports conserver's 
got to cover.

I notice that be default conserver builds itself to allow 32 child processes 
watching 8 consoles each.

Well that don't add up.

Anybody else out there got experience using conserver on large installations?
How far can you safely crank up NUM_CHILDREN and MX_CONSOLES? 
Do I need to start thinking about load sharing across two console server 
hosts?  (note most of our 832 ports are unused, but I still need to cover all 
of them)
