I see. I have a conserver managing 234 boxes using similar techniques,
and indeed I have 1118 conserver processes running. There seems to be a
memory leak somewhere as you can see on the graph:


I'm not sure yet where this is coming from

not sure about the 2100, but X4x00 should support SOL as they claim to be
IPMI 2.0 capable. However this isn't the case yet using the latest ILOM
formware. SUN support told us however that this should be solved, sometime
in the future, so this should ease things dramatically.
