Subject Re: [users@httpd] Help needed with event MPM configuration
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2014 14:40:38 GMT
In case of an event MPM,  unlike the worker MPM, can it be expected that an
idle worker thread starts working on a new connection or new requests on
another existing connection?

Or is the worker thread tied to a connection and will only work on requests
on that connection till the connection is closed?
