This is from the Python Library Reference, about SocketServer:
>request_queue_size: The size of the request queue. If it takes a long
time to process a single request, any requests that arrive while the
server is busy are placed into a >queue, up to request_queue_size
requests. Once the queue is full, further requests from clients will get
a ``Connection denied'' error. The default value is usually 5, >but this
can be overridden by subclasses.
I do not fully understand what does it mean. Is it for synchronous
I'm using ThreadingMixIn. I think that every client has a separate
How can I limit the number of clients in a multi-threaded server? I
could not find an
option for this. Did I missed something in the documentation?
Another important question: when I call server.handle_request() it will
an incoming connection arrives. Meanwhile there can be other handler
This way I'm unable to stop the server because the main thread is
blocked. Is there
a way to give a timeout for handle_request so I can preiodically check
if it is time
to stop the server? If not, how can I stop the server gracefully?
(I would like to stop or restart the server using a client connected to it.)
