Can we make the spawn process limit configurable? #1002
I'm experimenting only at the moment but I'm running a bazillion lightweight checks and I see that I'm getting limited by the number of number spawnable processes (hardcoded to 12 in sensu-spawn).
My ruby isn't much good and this isn't urgent at all, but I'd like to know if you think this would be worthwhile. Maybe I can contribute in the future, but I'd also appreciate a patch if you think this is reasonable and easy to fix.
Cheers and thanks for the awesome stuff!
I'm probably being silly here. :)
I'm scheduling 1500 checks every 60 seconds (using nagios check_http), so, yeah, this creates a backlog because that list of URLs (I just took the top few thousands from Alexa) will contain things that have network issues and thus make check_http hang.
Nevertheless, configurable might be nice. :)
