Subject [users@httpd] httpd performance and tunning
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2004 13:19:57 GMT
Hello everybody,

we have some Apache2 servers [stock suse 7.2 package] installed for webmail,
we use a php client for this.
My apaches are listenning on ports 80 and 8080, but clients *only 
connect* on port 80.
I have one machine in front of these apaches to balance connections.

I notice that connections from port 80 are very slow. It take times (30 
seconds or more)
to return a requests. But when I connect from port 8080 everything is so 
*fast* (less than 5s).

Running netstat on one of my webmail servers I see
# connections on port 80  ->  496
# conn. ESTABLISHED      54
# conn. CLOSE_WAIT      381
# conn. TIME_WAIT      36

many CLOSE_WAIT connections.

Is this related? What options in httpd.config I should hack to get 
better performance?
I have...
StartServers         5
MinSpareServers      5
MaxSpareServers     20
ServerLimit        500
MaxClients         499
MaxRequestsPerChild  1000


Timeout 300
KeepAliveTimeout 15

Thank you in advice
