Werk #11071: Standard xinetd config now limits parallel queries to 3 per source

Component Checks & Agents
Title Standard xinetd config now limits parallel queries to 3 per source
Date Apr 28, 2020
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.0.0i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

To avoid intentional or unintentional overload due to too many parallel queries from one source we set the parameter "per_source" in the default Checkmk agent xinetd configuration and "MaxConnectionsPerSource" to 3. It limits the number of concurrent connections per source address. If you need more requests per source system, you can of course increase or remove this value.

In regular setups where a single Checkmk site or a small number of sites per Checkmk server monitors one host this should be no problem. Please let us know in case this limitation is a problem for you.
