Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy - disablereuse
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 07:34:46 GMT


I experienced some problems with mod_proxy when the backend server is restarted.

This may be due to the reuse of invalid connections, hence I tried not to reuse them by using
disablereuse option:

ProxyPass / disablereuse=on

netstat command shows that connections are not reused (one connection per request) however
it seems that the connections are not cleaned up immediately and stay for a while in TIME_WAIT
I assume we could reach shortly a threshold on the server on TCP connections.

- Is there an option to immediately close the connection without waiting
- When re-using the connections (disablereuse=off), if the backend server is restarted, it
seems to hang. Any parameter controlling this behaviour.
