Subject [users@httpd] Appropriate mpm for Linux
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2004 02:24:36 GMT
Hello all,

I am building a new RHEL 3.0 server (kernel 2.4) to run apache 2.0.47 (w/
OpenSSL 0.9.6i). Apache will run Servlets using Sun JVM 1.4.2.  (I have been
running the same Apache config on Solaris before this with mpm set to
"worker" ).  

I would like to know, from this seasoned group :
1) if mpm=worker is still the best mpm to use for Linux 2.4 or is prefork
2) is this going to change with the 2.6 kernel (because of futexes etc)
3) Does anyone have suggestions as to the "IfModule" configs for the
prefork. I currently run:

<IfModule worker.c>
StartServers         4
MaxClients         500
MinSpareThreads     50
MaxSpareThreads    100 
ThreadsPerChild     50
MaxRequestsPerChild  0

The docs (understandably) do not have Linux specific info. So any
optimization HOWTOs for Apache on 2.4 or 2.6 will also be welcome.
