I’ve now sent two unsubscribe e-mails to this address - To unsubscribe, e-mail:<>

Is this a manual process I need to wait for?

Thanks Eric.
We might be able to increase the number of threads available to handle new connections, but
it seems like existing threads are doing nothing (CPU utilization is quite low). How can that
be explained?

connections that are newly established?

If you have 720 units of parallel, non-idle work and you don't want
queuing, you want MaxRequestWorkers >= 720.
