Automatic Reinitialization of connections

I am about to deploy conserver to manage about 300 consoles and need
advice on how to control the automatic re-initialisation of connections.

Without any arguments to conserver it appears to go into a very tight
loop retrying console connections that are not currently available. This
can consume a large amount of resource (CPU and disk log files).

I did notice a discussion thread about this in Dec 2001 but the code
appears to have changed significantly since, potentially making the
advice out-of-date (see

My preference would be to have failed console connections stay in a down
state to be rectified and manually restarted at a later date.

Does conserver support this scenario by default?

Can somebody advise code changes for conserver 7.2.1 to turn off the
automatic reinitialisation?

Much appreciated.
