Max socket connections in SUSE Enterprise Linux 10

Hi,

I need to find out the maximum number of socket connections which can be served by SUSE Enterprise Linux 10.  Novells Website has not been very helpful with this figure.  I understand most of this is controlled by ulimit on a system and per process basis, but I cannot find any documentation on what the upper limit is per distribution.  Is there a command/file which will inform me of the exact maximum allowed on any distribution.

I need to support around 1500 devices each using around 5 connections (split between client/server connections).  We need to be sure the underlying OS can handle this number of connections.

Thanks

If those sockets are IP sockets, then max is 64K (every socket have to has port assigned).
If those are UNIX domain sockets, then refer to /proc/sys/fs/file-max

ulimit -n
(number of open files) might also be a factor to keep in mind.
to see what all the limits are use:
ulimit -a
