Subject how to avoid balancer manager nonce?
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2012 13:45:04 GMT
I'm fighting a problem on new releases of AIX where in some
environments, /dev/random seems to run out of entropy way too quick.

I'd like a way to suppress the apr_uuid_get->
apr_generate_random_bytes() in mod_proxy_balancer used for the
balancer-manager nonce in affected environments.

I was thinking a global "BalancerManager off" could be used for this
and would also have the upside of fixing the SetHandler htaccess

Alternatives would be to find a weaker source for the nonce, or allow
tto opt out / use a hard-coded one.

Any suggestions?
