Hi to all,

Is there a way to monitor the busyness of my dedicated server cpu cores and
stop serving new connections passed a given cpu load threshold?
Put another way, what is the standard approach/technique to dynamically
limit the maximum number of connections my machine can cope with?

Thank you,
