What's the realistic maximum number of consoles that one conserver installation can support from one system?
Right now, I have four systems running conserver 8.1.13. The largest system is configured to managed about 3500 connections to cyclades terminal servers. The problem we're encountering is that whenever we have to modify the config and send conserver a -HUP, the system load shoots up to over 200, and conserver becomes unusable for the next 10 minutes until the load has dropped. This is extremely disruptive to people who are actively working on an individual console because it locks up until the load drops down to something normal.
The hardware isn't an issue: it's a four-core opteron system with 8GB of RAM, so it's pretty beefy.
