How to determine if "max clients" are being reached on your Linux VPS.

Here are the commands you would use to determine if or when "max clients" have been reached on your Linux VPS.

1. Open an application like Putty or whatever program you use to SSH to servers.

2. SSH to the VPS (Virtual Private Server) you want to check.

3. Run the following commands at the prompt: 

cd /var/log/httpd

Then this:

cat error_log |grep -i max

You'll see something like the following information below come up.

CT-1431-bash-4.1# cat error_log-********* |grep -i max
