Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45359] New: Apache Spawns Unnecessary Processes ( forward proxy mode)
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2008 00:45:36 GMT

           Summary: Apache Spawns Unnecessary Processes (forward proxy mode)
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: All

Apache seems to occasionally spawn up to 100+ extra processes even though the
apache.conf ServerLimit is set well below the 100+ threshold. Relevant config
is such:

ServerLimit 24
ThreadLimit 512
ThreadsPerChild 512
MinSpareThreads 256
MaxSpareThreads 12288
MaxRequestsPerChild 0
MaxClients 12288

The documentation would imply that the maximum number of processes with such a
configuration would be 24 since MaxRequestsPerChild is infinite and
MaxSpareThreads is equal to MaxClients.

I'm running in forward-proxy mode with a few custom modules but nothing that
forks off new proceses.

Would be glad to provide any additional information and/or debug if someone can
tell me where to look.
