Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy, ProxyPass, smax, ttl
Date Wed, 10 May 2006 20:54:31 GMT
Hi all.

I've been experimenting with HTTPD 2.2.2 and mod_proxy, and I've noticed 
that the smax and ttl options for the ProxyPass directive aren't working 
as I would expect.  I have several such directives of the following 

ProxyPass /foo ajp:// smax=0 ttl=30

Everything functions as expected, but if I put a high load on the server 
(100+ simultaneous users) and then remove the load, the number of 
connections from the web server to the proxy servers never declines 
significantly.  The expected behavior is that the now-idle connections 
should be closed after 30 seconds as indicated by the ttl parameter.

Have I misinterpreted the meanings of these parameters, or have I 
encountered a bug?

Thanks for any insights or suggestions.
