Subject [users@httpd] MaxSpareThreads not being honored
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2018 04:50:32 GMT
Could anyone tell me why Apache is not killing processes containing nothing
but idle threads and whose aggregate total exceeds MaxSpareThreads? Here are
some specs:

Server Version: Apache/2.4.35 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.2l
Server MPM: event

All MPM Event settings are default with the exception of MaxSpareThreads
which is set to 100. This means ServerLimit = 16 and ThreadsPerChild = 25.
According to mod_status, I have 16 total processes containing 399 idle
threads. This has been the case for about 12 hours.
