[THIN] Re: Question on Large Farm

That is interesting. It sounds like you experience a large number of
logon/logoffs a minute right? Generally in as a server is rolled in and
out the new server (with no load) will get the new connections until the
load is even. But it sounds to me like you really have a large number of
logons all the time?

The Idle session thing might be a valid question. Also I would look at
what is killing the server during this 30 or so minutes? Is it copying
roaming profiles? Large ones? Is it killing the CPU running logon
scripts with lots of external exe's etc...

Could be any number of things. But lets look at what is really happening
at the server.

I've only got an ickle farm of 2, and thats 1.8 as well, so doubt i'll
be much help, but some thoughts anyway-

how many listener connections do you have?
what is it that actually jams on the server? cpu or disk?
and what ARE the servers? specswise..

depending on how mfxp load balancing works, you might be able to get
around it by tweak the settings to dislike servers whose cpu/disk
(delete as appropriate from above!) is being thrashed?

Just how many are you getting on at once anyway?
