Subject [users@httpd] browsing Apache server within LAN SLOW!
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2003 00:48:36 GMT

I'm not 100% certain my problem has to do with Apache only (although I'm 98%
sure!)- FTP seems to be a bit slow too (logins are, transferring isn't bad
though.)  I do NOT have this problem from outside my router/cable modem!
This problem occurs for both static pages and dynamically generated pages.

Whenever I try to browse my server either from the server or from another
computer in the LAN, the speeds are really slow- and pages often time out.
Here are important stats:

Red Hat 9.0
Red Hat's Apache 2.0.40 build 21

I have a wireless router hooking up the computers.  The router is plugged
into a cable modem.  The server is wired into the router.  The router claims
to be switched, not shared hub.

I've been a tad slow at diagnosing this problem- I've actually had it for
the last couple of years.  I recently upgraded from Red Hat 7.3 to 9.0.  I
also had the problem with all the Red Hat's 7.x.  I don't think I had it
with Red Hat 6.x.  I recently replaced a wired router for my wireless
router- and had the same problem with the old router.

I have a domain- let's call it  The router is configured to pass
all port 80 queries on to the linux box.  I have a DDNS service passing all traffic onto the outside IP address of my router.

Browsing the server from inside the LAN with both
and prove to be slow.  It's also
slow if I use the IP address.  The IP address of my Linux box is "hard
coded" (not DHCP...)

I also use IMAP and Samba from the linux box within the LAN- I don't have
any speed problems there.

Thanks for any help or pushes in the right direction!

ps- I saw this thread in the archives:

it says to search for the thread with keywords "deadlock pipes read write
mod_cgi", but that search came up empty...
