Subject [users@httpd] Strange problem
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2005 23:17:27 GMT
We are using perl and apache2 for our software.  With our software, our 
users have the ability to upload an optional 4 images via an html form 
(sometimes the images can be quite big, they are from digital cameras). 
  While and image is uploading, apache2 queues all other requests until 
the upload completes.  I have confirmed this by watching the process 
list and attempting to upload a large image.  While it's uploading, I 
can watch the processes stack up.  They do this until I hit stop on my 
browser, and then they all get sent.  This is really causing a huge 
problem, because it's a pretty high volume site, and if someone on 
dialup is uploading a 1MB image, the server is virtually unuseable.

Note that during an image upload, the server's CPU load is usually 
floating around 90% idle, and there's plenty of memory left.

Any ideas on this one would be appreciated.
