Subject Kill signal testing of various mpms...
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2001 01:07:41 GMT
I have done some testing sending various kill signals to various MPMs.
The results are summarized at (follow the link to
the kill test results).

Basically the worker MPM had difficulties, and threaded had a hard time
doing graceless shutdown/restart while under a request load. But all MPMs
did what they are supposed to when no request load was present. So Greg is
correct in saying that the threaded MPM does shutdown/restart immediately
under no load.

Please let me know if you have different results than what is published.
I also only have results for unix MPMs run on Linux. I don't have a setup
to test OS/2 or Windows.

I will work to keep these results up to date as changes occur.
