I am wrestling with deploying an application on Windows Server 2012. The problem is that after accepting about ~2000 TCP connections it fails to accept more. And I need much more. We have 8 cores, 16 GB RAM, 3GH CPU, pretty strong box. But not capable of holding more than 2000 socket connections..
- if this is some kind of server OS limitation, can it be lifted?
- could anyone recommend tools for benchmarking how many TCP connections the server is capable of?
