Subject apache tuning for mirrors ?
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2001 05:53:33 GMT


does anyone have ideas on how to tune apache for very large directory
listings ?  this is perhaps out of the direct context of apache
mirroring, but i'm hoping there is a (very thin) signal there :-)

i'm using apache to provide a http interface into our ftp archives
(including the apache mirror) and on some directories (considering
that it's quite a heavily loaded/busy server) it can take several
minutes (5 minutes+) to return a directory listing which has
5,000+ entries in it.

using ftp, it starts streaming almost immediately and the listing
is about 1.5-2M long.. which takes around 30 seconds to complete.

with http, it often times out after a few minutes :-/
