Unable to connect: I/O Error

Postby poso » 18 Nov 2009, 14:16


I'm hitting the smartfox server using JMeter and a custom sampler that uses the Java API. The test scenario involves the following actions: connect, login, join room, move, logout and disconnect.
When I run this test with 500 virtual users I get 50% error on connect actions with the message "Unable to connect: I/O Error".
If I run with 200 virtual users I get no errors at all.

Is there a parameter configuration to set in order to be able to accept more connections from the server?


PS: This is my Config.xml:

Code: Select all


    SmartFoxServer PRO
    (c) 2004-2007 gotoAndPlay()

    Main Configuration file
    version 1.6.2

    You can find detailed informations on how to configure the server by reading
    the tutorials in section 2 of the documentation.
    ( http://www.smartfoxserver.com/docs/docPages/config/basics.htm )

It is likely that you are running out of file descriptors if you are using Linux/Unix. You will need to configure your system to allow many more files/sockets to handle a stress test.

All the details are found here:

Thanks Lapo! The test is running ok now.
