SAProuter does not accept a connection and outputs the following error message:


SapRouter on myhost


maximum number of clients reached





This means that SAProuter cannot accept any further clients because the maximum number has been reached (default 800). However, SAProuter continues running with all other clients.


In order not to have to restart SAProuter (and thereby end all existing connections), you should perform a soft shutdown of the SAProuter using Option -p. SAProuter then continues running on a different port. SAProuter can then be started on the old port, possibly with a larger number of clients. It will then accept clients again.

If you would like to automate this procedure, you can start SAProuter using Option -Y <n>. A new SAProuter is started automatically every time the client table becomes full.
