Description

Number of sockets a spider can use.

If you have a low-bandwidth link to the Internet, you can reduce the number of sockets HTTP Connector uses. A maximum of 16 socket connections is recommended for a low-bandwidth situation.

If you have a high bandwidth available, you can increased the number of sockets to 256.

Note: If you are using the NTLM Proxy module, it is recommended you set the number of sockets in the connector, specified by the NSockets parameter, lower than the number of threads in the NTLM Proxy module, specified by the NumThreads parameter.

Example

NSockets=32
