A client connection policy can specify resource limits, helping to ensure that no single client monopolizes server resources.
The resource limits are applied in addition to any global configuration resource limits. A client connection policy can't grant additional resources beyond what is set in the global configuration. If a client connection exceeds either a globally-defined limit or a policy limit, it is terminated.
The Directory Proxy Server’s global configuration can enforce limits on the number of concurrent connections that can be established in the following ways:
- Limit the total number of concurrent connections to the server.
- Limit the total number of concurrent connections from the same IP address.
- Limit the total number of concurrent connections authenticated as the same bind distinguished name (DN).
