A state server is the place where ClearBox Server stores
information about currently established user connections. When a
connection is opened and a user's session starts, ClearBox uses
accounting request to add an entry to the state server about this
session. When the session is terminated, ClearBox removes its entry
from the state server table.
State servers are used by ClearBox to perform 'double-logon
prevention', i.e. to control the number of sessions a user may
start simultaneously. You may configure this value as a global realm value, when this limit is
checked for every user authenticated in the realm, or for a
particular user. In the latter case the limit value is retrieved
from a database.
State server is implemented as a database table, where all rows
represent current connections to NASes. All you need when setting
up a new state server is to specify SQL commands used to add a row,
remove it, or clear all entries when a NAS reboots.
