1. Is there one instance of an Xserver running, or is a new instance loaded
for each new display created(when a new VNC Client connection occurs).
2. Each Xclient sends its graphical display information to the
i am wrong). There is a framebuffer associated with each VNC Client.
If true, which part of the code is responsible for the updation and

Is there some documentation on it.
Appreciate the help
