VOV: How Do I Enable Retracing Of More Than 400 Jobs At A Time?

To limit how many jobs can be run and retraced at any given moment, use the following command:

set config(maxNormalClients)  NNN

This is the maxNormalClients config variable in the policy.tcl file.

To change the variable, use the following command:

% vovsh -x 'vtk_server_config "maxNormalClients" maxnumberofjobs'

To avoid exhaustion and possible denial-of-service, take into account the number of file descriptors available to the vovserver .
