Subject ThreadsPerChild default in mpm_winnt
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2002 14:35:23 GMT
I was just trying to correct the docs for ThreadLimit and 
ThreadsPerChild to have the correct defaults for mpm_winnt, and I ran 
into a little confusion.  From a very quick reading, it appears that the 
mpm_default.h for  mpm_winnt is stolen directly from an MPM that has 
min/maxsparechild maintenance.  As far as I know, mpm_winnt has a fixed 
number of threads, so most of the defines do absolutely nothing.

It also appears that the default for ThreadsPerChild is set at 
DEFAULT_START_THREAD, which is in turn set at 5.  This may be a 
reasonable number for worker, where more processes can be forked to deal 
with load.  But it doesn't seem to make any sense for mpm_winnt.

Am I out to lunch here, or could mpm_winnt/mpm_default.h use an overhaul?
