HI Mark,

My DBServer module already serves as a broker. At the moment it opens
a new connection for every incoming Agent connection. I did it this
way because I wanted to leave synchronisation to PGSQL. I might have
to modify it a bit and use a shared, single connection for all agents.
I guess that is not a bad option I just have to ensure that the code
is not below par :),

Also thank for the postgresql.conf hint, that limit was pretty low on
our server so this might help a bit,

TIP 7: don't forget to increase your free space map settings
