Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache process not coming down and going high upto 259
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 08:11:29 GMT
Hello Rainer,

Thanks for the valuable input.

I have following mod_jk options configured for my web server.

Is it possible to know if any of the below options are responsible for creating so many child
processess and by removing any of them will reduce the number of child processess.

How do i tune my webserver so that the number of child processess comes down. 

LoadModule    jk_module  modules/
JkWorkersFile /opt/web/apache/app/erib2b/conf/
JkLogFile /opt/web/apache/app/erib2b/logs/mod_jk.log
JkLogLevel info
JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y] "
JkOptions +ForwardURIEscaped +ForwardURICompatUnparsed
JkRequestLogFormat "%w %V %T"
JkMount /* worker1

As a shortcut for discussion: The lines come from the JkRequestLogFormat 
configuration setting that you must have added somewhere (default: no 
such setting, no lines). The configured format will tell you, what the 
entry means. Likely it is either the name of the vortual host, or the 
value of the host header the client sent.

For details see:

and look for "JkRequestLogFormat" in that page.

The use of that directive is no longer recommended, because it is easier 
to include request log information into the usual access log via 
mod_log_config. Look for "mod_log_config" in the same page.
