Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy_ajp (apache 2.2
Date Thu, 22 Apr 2010 10:03:59 GMT

Hello list,

it seems mod_proxy / mod_proxy_ajp does not realize config changes while
doing a
graceful restart.

I need to connect to 2 ajp-services but only to one at one time.

If I have

ProxyPass /sample balancer://balancer/sample stickysession=JSESSIONID

<Proxy balancer://balancer>
BalancerMember ajp://app1:8009 route=app1 loadfactor=1 status=D
BalancerMember ajp://app2:8009 route=app2 loadfactor=1 

Then everything works OK.

If I change it to 

<Proxy balancer://balancer>
BalancerMember ajp://app1:8009 route=app1 loadfactor=1
BalancerMember ajp://app2:8009 route=app2 loadfactor=1 status=D 

And perform a apache -k graceful

The /balancer-manager shows the old config.
And the apache is not working like the new way but the above.

If I perform a restart - all current sessions get be killed -
and it works as it connects to the other balancer member.

Why is graceful not enough? Or what can I do to get the config
change in balancer without terminating current sessions?
(If I do it with the balancer-manager via Web it works as well).

Any hints appreciated.
