Subject [users@httpd] Freeze Apache 2.2.8 / Ubuntu 8.04 Linux version 2.6.24-23-server
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2009 09:41:13 GMT

On several machines, after X hundreds of http calls, I get Apache2 freezing
this way :

- apache2 accepts the TCP requests but does not answer to the HTTP requests,
so Firefox says connected with and the page loader turns indefinetely.
- when I stop apache (/etc/init.d/apache2 stop) the scripts says OK but a ps
afx shows me the apache2 processes are still there and listen to ports 80 &
443, so an /etc/init.d/apache2 start fails saying (98)Address already in
use: make_sock: could not bind to address
- only a killall -9 apache2 allows me to restart apache2.

I can reproduce that issue with any kind of applications (Python, PHP or
Java with mod_jk over Tomcat) and I'm using those modules :

Apache/2.2.8 (Ubuntu) mod_jk/1.2.25 mod_ssl/2.2.8 OpenSSL/0.9.8g
mod_wsgi/2.3 Python/2.5.2

Of course, when I run perf tests Apache2 freezes after a few minutes.

Could anyone help me find out why apache2 freezes ?
