I have been very happy with 7.2.7 running on an HP/UX 10.20 box. I checked, and there are no problems with log files in /var/log. I am monitoring just short of 100 consoles via Xyplex terminal servers (with a power supply "break" fix). The sysadmins think I am some kind of genius, but I tell them it is just a great piece of software and point to Bryan's website.

7.2.7 is a very stable product. Thanks to Bryan.

well, aside from a huge logfile, i suppose not.  it *is* a sign of a
bug, however.  conserver must not be properly removing a file descriptor
from it's list of open files (it might not have dropped a bad console
structure or client structure or something else, even).  it's hard to
say for sure.

restarting conserver should "fix" it...in that it'll all start over and
hopefully the bit of code that triggered the problem won't occur again
(very soon, anyway).

but the real key is to try and get to 7.2.7 (if possible).  i can't
promise that the code that's at fault has been fixed in 7.2.7, but the
chances are pretty good.  i haven't heard of any major issues with
7.2.7...unless most folks have made the jump to 8.x.x and there's a lack
of use of
