Subject Re: [users@httpd] One virtual server causes my whole network to come to a crawl
Date Fri, 06 May 2005 14:47:20 GMT
It seems to be a traffic issue actually. Apache is on it's own server. 
If I unplug the Apache server from the network, the network works 
correctly again. If I turn off the said virtual server, the same result 
happens. I use custom usage logs for each virtual server and the size of 
this particular server was about twice the size compared to the others.

I'm getting this in the error log:

This is Redhat 9.0. <hiding face> Unfortunately, I know just enough 
about Linux to get things running. I've never had to deal with an issue 
like this. So I am clueless in figuring out what kinda traffic is 
happening, etc. It FEELS like the traffic is outgoing though. If it were 
incoming traffic, the traffic would still be coming in wouldn't it? I 
mean if you go to the url in question, it currently loads the main 
website instead. So that traffic would be the same.

ANY pointers to information about tracking traffic, etc would be 
helpful. I'd like to learn from this mess.

Thank you for your understanding and time.
