Subject [users@httpd] Apache tuning for high performance
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2003 16:32:33 GMT

I have a webserver with 512MB SDRAM and Intel 733Mhz processor.
Server version: Apache/1.3.23 (Unix)

My httpd.conf says...

	Timeout 300

	KeepAlive On

	MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

	KeepAliveTimeout 15

	MinSpareServers 5
	MaxSpareServers 10

	StartServers 5

	MaxClients 150

	MaxRequestsPerChild 0

For next four months, I will be hosting a small JSP script for which I
am expecting 
5,12,00,000 hits. This page will be serving a cookie and small html
Most hits will come on Monday and Friday during day time. 

So if I have 5000 hits in a minute, will this configuration able to
handle that ?

I need to understand whether my apache is capable of taking this load.

What effect I will have if I made keepAlive=OFF and Timeout=50 Seconds.

Please suggest me how do I evaluate my server based on this requirement.
