Maximum number of connection to an Aerospike node

query

#1

Hi,

As stated above, I’m wondering if there are numbers related to the amount of connections an Aerospike node can handle? Is proto-fd-max the correct configuration? A connection here means a distinct connection from a client machine to a Aerospike node (i.e if I have 100 machines, there would be 100 connections to the Aerospike node).

Also, I’m using Aerospike on AWS, so would upgrading the instance type to be larger means I can get a higher number of connections for the node?

Thanks.

proto-fd-max is the maximum number of client connections to a node, yes. I would like to say that 1 client can generate hundreds of connections depending on the load/type of fetch/language
