MaxConcurrentTransfers (MC)

Learn how to use the MaxConcurrentTransfers config.txt directive to specify the number of HTTP transfers that can be active concurrently in EZproxy.

MaxConcurrentTransfers (also written as MC) specifies the maximum number of HTTP transfers that can be active concurrently. The default value of 200 allows 200 transfers simultaneously. This default meets the needs of most configurations.

If EZproxy reaches the maximum concurrent transfers limit, it will record an error in the messages.txt file.

MaxConcurrentTransfers is a non-repeatable position-independent config.txt directive.
