Thanks Mark,

Isn't this option defaulted to 5 sec? Anyway, I'll try and will check the
How do you get the -x to work? If I set it to anything higher than 256 pen
does not start. Do I need to recompile pen?

Have you tried the -t option? We run our PEN setup with a timeout of
60 seconds to avoid inactive connections taking up client slots:

pen -x 512 -t 60 host1:5432 host2:5432 host3:5432

Let me know if the suggestion works.
