Subject [users@httpd] KeepAlive and server performance
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 05:52:46 GMT
I use Apache Worker MPM to serve all images from site. My setting looks
<IfModule worker.c>
StartServers         2
MaxClients         200
MinSpareThreads     25
MaxSpareThreads     75
ThreadsPerChild     25
MaxRequestsPerChild  0

The server-status at some random time looks like:
11 requests currently being processed, 64 idle workers
12 requests currently being processed, 63 idle workers
17 requests currently being processed, 58 idle workers

I read about KeepAlive, and it is said that setting KeepAlive On can
speed up the latency times for HTML with many images. I tried to set
KeepAlive On on my image server, but the result was much much slower.
My setting was like:
KeepAlive Off
KeepAliveTimeout 10
MaxKeepAliveRequests 50

The server-status was full of K (Keepalive Read) signs. Did I do
something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
