Subject Re: [users@httpd] Invalid Requests in Apache 1.3.28
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 10:24:07 GMT
Hi,

When we run the command

ps -ef|grep httpd|wc -l  it will give how many HTTPD processes are
running in that machine.

Our web server starts with minimum 1 HTTPD processes only. We have got
HARD LIMIT set to 512 and often when such below mentioned requests
comes to web server, web server HTTPD processes will reach 512 very
quickly and block the further requests.

As these requests are not getting forwarded to application layer and
not creating any page views, don't you think that we should stop such
requests

Or there are any way to find out why HTTPD processes are incrasing so
much and how to avoid web server creating bottleneck for such requests

Thanks in advance
