Subject [users@httpd] Apache newbie help - Multiple /usr/sbin/httpd2-preforks ...
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:31:52 GMT
Hi guys, 

I am sorry if this is such a newbie question!

 

I was diagnosing an un-related issue on my web-server and had to list
processes to see which PID needed to be killed.  I noticed that there
were several entries for the "http2-prefork" process ...

 

[start]

wwwrun    8786  0.0  0.5  88452  6052 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8787  0.0  0.5  88452  6052 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8788  0.0  0.5  88452  6052 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8790  0.0  0.5  88452  6040 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8791  0.0  0.5  88452  6040 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8793  0.0  0.5  88452  6040 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8813  0.0  0.5  88452  6036 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8814  0.0  0.5  88452  6036 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

wwwrun    8815  0.0  0.5  88452  6040 ?        S    10:54   0:00
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

[end]

 

I mean, it's not a huge problem or anything the webserver seems to be
running OK - but is it right there should be multiple processes running
like this?  I am sorry but I do not know if you need to view any configs
or if there is a setting somewhere that controls the number of
processes, I installed it through Yast and left it as default (as I am a
newbie and this is for a home website!).

 

I really would appreciate any replies that will help me to understand
better.

Thank you

 

Richard
