Subject [users@httpd] urgent- ideal config setting reqd
Date Wed, 18 Oct 2006 11:14:32 GMT
Hi All,
	We were using Apache 2.0.50 as a reverse proxy on Linux (RHEL 4), compiled in Worker model.
We see that within an hour, the system enters in to swap, whereas CPU is 92% free.
The load on the machine we are not able to calculate, but 'netstat' on port 8080 gives 3000
- 5000 connections on peak load.
The machine used is a 4 GB RAM, 2 GB Swap, dual CPU with HT enabled.
Can anyone suggest what will the ideal configuration for our setup?
Or where we can start looking in to?

The configurations of worker.c  we used were:
       ServerLimit         20
       StartServers        15
       ThreadsPerChild     60
       MaxClients          1200
       MinSpareThreads     25
       MaxSpareThreads     1200
       MaxRequestsPerChild 1000

Now we have changed it to the following and observing the behavior:
	ServerLimit         8
StartServers        3
ThreadsPerChild     50
MaxClients          400
MinSpareThreads     25
MaxSpareThreads     100
MaxRequestsPerChild 500

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Sai Jai Ganesh
