Hi,

Hello,

This is one of very famous errors.

The error message that you are getting is
generally seen during high workload on a
server.

Some ideas where to look for a resolution:

a) Check your RAM and swap utilisation.
Free memory if possible.

b) Since you run HP-UX 11.31, I assume your
O/S and patches are in order (not too old).

c) Maybe you need to increase value for
parameter tcp_conn_request_max?

Edit /etc/rc.config.d/nddconf,and add lines
like:

TRANSPORT_NAME[n]=tcp
NDD_NAME[n]=tcp_conn_request_max
NDD_VALUE[n]=...

.. to make the change permanent.

Or, use ndd(1m) command to make the change
immediately (no reboot required).

Cheers,

1. Number of telnet sessions exceeds the limit.
2. Heavy load on the server

Thanks

if it is since you installed a patch, check the swagent.log & swinstall.log to see if no error occured during the install.
This can be due to a kernel binary mismatch.
- kernel libs not consistent from different patches-

The problem was heavy load on the server due to very large size of SGA specified bt DBA and the system was not having enough free memory. I got the SGA size reduced and it was fine.
