Subject filtering an error
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2001 21:49:59 GMT

I am running apache on a server which has limited memory. To make sure we
don't spawn httpd processes unbounded I set maxclients such that we will be
able to fit in available memory without doing too much swapping. Because of
this I sometimes see the "server reached MaxClients setting..." message.

1. I feel like this message should not be an Error level message since I
intended this to occur.
2. This product is a network appliance and I don't want to alarm the
administrator that something has gone wrong, so ideally I would like to
filter this message out using an httpd.conf directive of some sort, but I
don't see anything available. Who can I send mail to to request a feature
like this? or if it a feature like this already exists, please point me at
3. I'm currently patching the source by setting

    static int reported = 1;

in src/main/http_main.c so that this error never shows up. Is there a better
way to handle this?
