Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache response time slow
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:25:23 GMT
The typical response was very fast (on miliseconds).

The access to the database is is part of the connection string on the

Apache authenticate the user access to the directories that containts the
perl programs, using the httpd.conf and the htgroup and htpasswd file.
<Directory /usr/local/apache2/cgi-bin/indocadmin>
AllowOverride None
AuthName "INDOC"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/.htgroup
require group INDOCSEC
order deny,allow
deny from all
satisfy any

initialy i get the log message:
    POST HTTP/1.1 401

then is enter user id and password and click enter.

then i get a delay of 40 seconds or more and the log message:
  POST HTTP/1.1 200
indicating OK

No one has changed the Sybase database, i have the only unix workstation,
that can telnet to the Database Server.  We are using an intranet
classified network.  The Apache, Sybase and the programs are all in the
same server.
