  === Requests From the Server to Itself ===
  When the Apache HTTP Server manages its child processes, it needs a way to wake up processes
that are listening for new connections. To do this, it sends a simple HTTP request back to
itself. This request will appear in the access_log file with the remote address set to the
loop-back interface (typically or ::1 if IPv6 is configured). If you log the User-Agent
string (as in the combined log format), you will see the server signature followed by "{{{(internal
dummy connection)}}}" on non-SSL servers. During certain periods you may see up to one such
request for each {{{httpd}}} child process.
