Subject [users@httpd] OPTIONS Requests Hanging Around
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 18:15:03 GMT
Hey, folks.  I'm seeing a bunch of OPTIONS * requests that are hanging around for a long time.
 The entries in my server-status that look like this:

3-2     1598    1/211/71054     C       5.93    61210   0       0.0     17.96   6065.14

There are also a number of much better behaved OPTIONS requests that come and go.

Most of what I've seen in my googling regarding this just indicates that OPTIONS requests
are a) standard method requests, and b) used by apache internally to communicate with children
to see if they're up and running properly.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Eric
