Subject [users@httpd] Strange Delay
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2006 15:04:05 GMT
I have doing some stress tests on my apache2 install (using simple curl
posts) and have noticed a strange delay after it handles a large number
of requests (150-200+). The strange part is that during the delay, cpu
usage is 0% and memory usage doesn't change. So what's happening in this
2 second void? Is there a way to eliminate this delay?

Some notes: 
The post data is small (482 bytes). 
The requests are streamed in one after another. I don't know if curl is
doing any parallel threading in the background. 
The handler simply echos the data back out so no fancy processing.
All traffic is on an isolated LAN.
The delays seems to occur at regular intervals.
