Subject [users@httpd] Apache hangs when maximum connection beyond 2000
Date Tue, 19 May 2009 20:43:19 GMT
Hello Everybody


I have a webserver running on Dell Poweredge Xeon Processor with 4GB Ram.
There is only one website a learning management system called

Moodle. Configuration of Apache is as follows.


This is the Prefork Module.

<IfModule prefork.c>

StartServers       8

MinSpareServers    5

MaxSpareServers   20

ServerLimit      256

MaxClients       256

MaxRequestsPerChild  4000




This is the Worker Module


<IfModule worker.c>

StartServers         2

ServerLimit          21

MaxClients          2000 (This was before 256,I changed to 2000)

MinSpareThreads     25

MaxSpareThreads     75

ThreadsPerChild     25

MaxRequestsPerChild  0



When the output    "netstat -tn | wc -l " goes beyond the 2000 the load of
the server will go high say above 100 and server will hang down.

I need to avoid this. So what will be the configuration to be changed to
increase the client connection above this limit. Because students 

are accessing this site across the country simultaneously from NAT mode.


Please help,Thanks in advance.


Greetings ....
