Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Defines the number of user sessions a Domino server can accommodate.


Specifies the maximum number of sessions that can run concurrently on the server. To prevent server overload, decrease this number if you set up multiple Replicators or Routers. Domino R5 is able to scale better than Domino R4.x, allowing it to support more users concurrently. Therefore, the following parameters should not be set in the NOTES.INI file. These parameters will be automatically configured by the Domino R5 server. They will not be present in the NOTES.INI, but if left they will be supported.

When a new user attempts to log on, if the current number of sessions is greater than the value of Server_MaxSessions, Domino closes the least-recently-used session. In order for a session to be considered for closing, it must have been inactive for at least one minute.
