Understanding SHOUTCast 1.9.5. Logs

I am trying to troubleshoot a network connectivity issue that has appeared on our Internet-facing data center, specific to our SHOUTCast 1.9.5/Linux Server.

I know I should be up on these things, but I'm trying to understand the Log File output, and what the info presented means.

I will not be including the times or IP addresses from the log, just the data afterwards.

For Example:

starting stream (UID: 123548)[L: 2]{A: MPEG OVERRIDE}(P: 2)
connection closed (146 seconds) (UID: 123548)[L: 2]{Bytes: 644569}(P: 2)

The big question for me are the "L" and "P" identifiers.

Thanks in advance!

L is the current number of listeners after the client connection has gone away.

P is something to do with the internal socket handling (not too sure and don't have the time to properly read through the v1 DNAS source code to work it out).

and if you are going to stay on a v1 DNAS, you really need to be on v1.9.8 and not v1.9.5.
