Set number of semaphores allocated per set.


[Debug]    semsperset=n

n is an integer. The maximum value is 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 ((2 ** 63) – 1). The default value is 0.


Semsperset is the number of semaphore InterSystems IRIS® data platform should allocate per set. When this parameter is set to 0, InterSystems IRIS allocates the minimum number of semaphore sets by maximizing the number of semaphores per set (see Semaphores in InterSystems Products). The semsperset parameter in the CPF can be used to specify a lower number of semaphores per set.

Changing This Parameter

You can change Semsperset by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
