A method and mechanism for efficiently handling connections in a computer system between client sockets and data sockets of a server. The server includes a receive-any thread having a socket mask associated therewith to listen for new connection requests and for activity on data sockets handled thereby. The server further includes receive-direct threads associated with at least some of the data sockets for handling data communication. When a receive-direct connection has no activity for a period of time, the connection is migrated to a receive-any connection. When a receive-any connection becomes active, the connection is migrated to a receive-direct connection if a receive-direct thread is available.
