Subject RE: [users@httpd] Why the sudden need to raise MaxClients?
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2006 20:27:22 GMT
Thanks for the reply -- at least knowing this is abnormal is a step in
the right direction.

By "standard debian packages," I mean I am using unmodified packages
from the stable distribution of debian; no backports, no recompiled
packages.  The package version is 2.0.54-5, which is the latest version
available from the official debian stable repository.

I would implement mod_status, except that once MaxClients is reached,
won't mod_status be useless, since it relies on being able to serve a
page via HTTP?  Or will mod_status work regardless?

Well, "standard debian packages" mean nothing to me.  And given the fact
that it is being reported by two debian users, I suspect it is something
in there that is causing the problem.

What you are reporting is certainly not normal behavior.  You can use
mod_status's server-status handler to at least see what the processes
are doing.
