I'm currently testing ACE acceleration module and be confronted to a limited number of concurrent connection by user. When a test is initiated with virtual users from a single computer (and thus a single IP source), the connections are rejected when 50 simultaneous connection threshold is hit.
I have a default ressource profile associated with the virtual context. I guess it's some kind of DoS protection mechanism. Is there a way to suppress or extend the threshold?
The error I receive is %ACE-LB_GENERAL-2-728033: Failed to establish Web Application Acceleration connection: Maximum concurrent connectionslimit (50) reache
Thanks for your help
It is 50 concurrent connection on the ACE 4710 as a whole. You can remove the optimization policy from the VIP and just do Load Balancing in which you will be allow the full 1,000,000 connections. Otherwise you will need to purchase the Optimization License.
