Subject Re: general/5838: HTTPD becomes unresponsive
Date Tue, 07 Mar 2000 12:53:25 GMT

Hmm, given that this is not seen on identical hardware/OS combinations
under serious load there migh be more. Just to cut down the playground 
to a managable size:

0.	Is it a specific page or URL which it always hangs on ?
1.	What sun patches did you (already) apply
2.	What mdoules have you compiled in ?
3.	If you do 'truss -p XXX' or 'gdb -p XXX' on
	the offending process what is it doing ?
4.	Are any of your (log) files on NFS ?
5.	Are you using (nis(+))
6.	What other services are you running on that
	machine ? Do they have the same issue.

>From your msg it is unclear wether or not you are looking
for commercial support. The web page will give you a list
of companies happily doing this.

This happens on an almost regular basis and I can't hardly turn my back on this software.
 I kill/restart the process nightly, but that doesn't always seem to prevent this from happening.
 I don't know if it's an issue with Apache or Sun's TCP/IP implementation or what, but I am
wondering at this point if I would not be better off to go with a commercial solution with
support, etc.
