Maximum Locks

maximum locks locks

The number locks is the maximum number of locks that Zim Server can handle simultaneously. This means that the sum of all locks used in all ongoing transactions cannot exceed this number. Consequently, the larger the number of users, the bigger the number of locks needed and, correspondingly, more shared memory will be required.

The utility ZimExplore can help to monitor the number of locks actually in use. The initial line of action would be to accept the default number and then, by monitoring the usage of these locks, increase or decrease the value according to real needs.
