MaxSessions (MS)

MaxSessions (also written as MS) specifies the maximum number of user sessions that can be active simultaneously. The default value of 500 allows 500 simultaneous sessions. This default meets the needs of most configurations.

If EZproxy reaches the maximum sessions limit, it will record an error in the messages.txt file.

MaxSessions is a non-repeatable position-dependent config.txt directive.
