I can confirm this bug.

I’m running apache 2.2.x (24 now) with about 250 connections open all the time.
Reloading apache configuration (apachectl graceful) is very slow and takes 1-4
minutes. During that time new connections are established but webpages are not
served. Monitoring programs with a timeout will detect this as apache crash and
try to restart it which makes situation even more complicated. I’ve seen this
issue for years now.

I’ve applied Arkadiusz Miskiewicz patch for 2.2.24
( and it makes quite a
difference. Graceful restarts are now executed in 4-12 seconds. I personaly
think it is still to long. Webpages on webserver should not be inaccessible due
to graceful restart even for 2 seconds. There great is need for better way of
reloading configuration and “graceful” was always quick and very dirty
