The new administrative interface enabled using admin_address and admin_port variables helpful in many scenarios for example "Handling too many connections" issue.

However, as of now there is no limit on number of connections that can be established using administrative interface.

"There is no limit on the number of administrative connections."


It would be really helpful, if we can add another option like max_admin_connections to limit number of connections from admin interface.
