Subject [users@httpd] vhosts conf file efficiency
Date Sun, 12 Feb 2012 06:35:00 GMT

Is it more efficient for all virtualhost blocks to be in a single
file, eg httpd-vhosts.conf, or for each of them to be in their own
"one file per domain" via an include hosts.d/*.conf
We are talking a minimum of 2000 hosts per machine.

Memory I assume would be the same since it needs to know every domain,
but hows it for speed of starts?

Any other caveats, like file descriptor issues?
