Subject [users@httpd] "client" or "request" meaning
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 14:35:01 GMT
Hi,

sorry for previous message.
I'm trying to fully understand the meaning of "client" or "request" concepts in Apache.
For example:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#maxclients

Description:Maximum number of connections that will be processed
simultaneously 

...
The MaxClients directive sets the limit on the number of simultaneous requests that will be
served. 

So, what is a "connection"?
If I connect to my home webmail, I see several connection, even if I the only user.
This means that 5 or 6 "clients" are already reserved?

Thankyou very much.
