Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache closes the connection after receiving a request.
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 22:56:01 GMT
Hi Yann,

Many thanks for the prompt response.

I believe it does not relate to KeepAliveTimeout. We are using the default value (KeepAliveTimeout
= 5s); the time span between the successful request (which has a proper response) and the
subsequent failed request (which has ACK but the connection got disconnected after that) varies
from 1s to 11s. We did increase KeepAliveTimeout to 35s but the problems still persisted.

Talking about KeepAliveTimeout, I expect that if the time is expired, the sever will force
the client to open new TCP connection not accepting the request then closing the connection
right after that. Am I wrong ?

a request (sent ACK back to a client). With the KeepAlive is On, there were several successful
requests & responses in the same TCP connection before this happens. The disconnection
usually happened around the request 7th or 8th.

How long between the previous request and the one for which the
connection is (early) closed?
Is that time related to the KeepAliveTimeout configuration?
