Hi Kishore,

To ensure that we have proper version/platform/compiler information,
please make sure you fill out the appropriate problem report form (PRF),
which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO.  Make sure to include this information
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers

I think the best way to do this is via TAO's connection caching
capabilities.  These are described to some extent in the online
documentation at 


e.g., as part of the discussion of the options
-ORBConnectionPurgingStrategy, -ORBConnectionCacheMax,
-ORBConnectionCachePurgePercentage, etc.  I believe the best way to
learn about this stuff, however, is to get a copy of the TAO Developer's
Guide from OCI <http://www.theaceorb.com/product/index.html>.  You might
also consider contacting Johnny Willemsen <jwillemsen at remedy.nl> to see
if he'd add this information to the Remedy TAO Programmer's Guide

Take care,
