Subject [users@httpd] Increasing MaxClients -- httpd.conf
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2003 19:41:36 GMT

I am getting huge number of hits on my server, so I have increased the
MaxClients to 256. Now it seems like all my 256 clients are being used
and many requests are waiting in pool. Or at this point my apache is
denying further connections ?

How can I compile my apache to raise MaxClients limits ? My all
processes are in K mode [Keep-Alive ]. If I reduce the Keepalive time,
will that help me ? 

Because all this hits are coming to a single url, which just send a
cookie. Not much data. And I don't see multiple requests happening on
single socket.

Please let me know what I can do to overcome this. 


Here is what my /server-status shows.
