Configuring font server connection limits
It is possible to overload a given font server with
requests for fonts.
To prevent this from happening, you can change two
aspects of the font server:
a limit on the number of clients that can connect to
the font server
whether or not a font server will clone itself
if the client limit is reached
For example, you can configure the font server to
limit the number of clients that can connect
to it at one time to 20.
Then, if that limit is reached, clone another font server.
To do this, follow these steps:
Log in as root.
Edit the font server configuration file.
The default is /usr/lib/X11/fs/config.
Insert the keyword client-limit.
Set it to 20 (or whatever value you want):
client-limit = 20
Reset the font server with the fontserv command:
