max-clients value

Post by Muse95 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:03 pm

Are there any guidelines for the max-clients value? Valid values to use?
What is the relationship to the status reported for IFCONFIG POOL?

I had max-clients 14 in my server.conf
when I enabled and started my server and checked the status I saw:
IFCONFIG POOL: base 10.8.0.2 size 12...

I changed max-clients to 16, but it gave the same result in the status

I changed max-clients to 32, and now status reports
IFCONFIG POOL: base=10.8.0.4 size=62

I am confused.
I don't want lots of clients, but I don't want to limit things too much either.
