#1 Postby ufkabakan » Aug 02, 2012 2:53 pm

Hello All,

My httpd.conf:

Code: Select all

Timeout 60
KeepAlive Off
MaxKeepAliveRequests 10
KeepAliveTimeout 5

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers       30
MinSpareServers    30
MaxSpareServers   75
ServerLimit      4096
MaxClients       4096
MaxRequestsPerChild  20000
</IfModule>


Some peak hours i see this error msg on Apache error log:

Code: Select all

On this error, server have total 1500~ connection on Apache, server have low loads like %5, ram usage 2GB~

This servers hardware like:
E3-1230 CPU
8GB DDR3 Ram
4x2TB Disk
1Gbit Port

I think problem about apache config. Because i remember this server can handle easly 4K connection, before reinstalling OS + Apache, 3 months ago.

Any Advice?
Please dont offer nginx mod, this is not a CPU load problem.

Code: Select all

Timeout 30
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 5
KeepAliveTimeout 10

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers       5
MinSpareServers  5 
MaxSpareServers   10
ServerLimit      512
MaxClients       350
MaxRequestsPerChild  10000
</IfModule>

this should be fine

with keep alive off , every new request will be taken care of

then for the child process error , it says exactly what stands there
that apache is not able to create a child process , that means or apache is flashing or under heavy load
or apache just have not enouf time or to many open connections so it can not create childprocess

eather way , lower the maxrequestperchild and that problem should be solved but load can go up (also ram can go up)

those settings are the same i use on my webserver and here you can see the status of how it is doin (cpanel on it )

only when i get a ddos attack then all requests get filled but the website can still be accesed (slow but working)

I cant stay with 512 Max client.

From my status page, after havea load and restart Apache:
Total accesses: 1389 - Total Traffic: 58.5 GB
CPU Usage: u.03 s.68 cu3.91 cs0 - 1.5% CPU load
4.5 requests/sec - 193.9 MB/second - 43.1 MB/request
1008 requests currently being processed, 51 idle workers


This server must handle 3K connection with Apache, but how?

Apache always had problem with high number of connections, i would recommend changing the webserver mate

let me show you a difference ok ??

Your server wrote:Total accesses: 1389 - Total Traffic: 58.5 GB

Do you see the request per second ??
i got more requests per second then you have but a lot less requests that are beein processed at the same time

That means a few things
or you are having a ddos attack ( mass connection at the same moment)
or your server does not close connections like it should be

You need to tweak apache to close connections after a certain moment
You can also use keep alive to limit those connections of the same users , a keep alive let you run mass connections to 1 single connection ( like 10 requests to the same process )

i do not know if your webserver is serperated from your file server
but if that is not the case , then i definaly would do that to spare some connections (so file server only serve downloads and webserver take care of users with a fast close connection )

hopely this helps you

here is the current status of a dedicated server that only serve a certain type of forum and that got a lot of visitors at the same moment

average users online is 30 at all times (whois.among.us) with peaks of 60 users

dedicated server for heavy forum wrote:Current Time: Sunday, 05-Aug-2012 13:05:35 CEST

5.01 requests/sec - 28.9 kB/second - 5.8 kB/request
12 requests currently being processed, 8 idle workers


ofcourse a file server is a little differend , but it shows that it depends how you tweak the things and that it does mather how you setup it

many requests is never good , so they need to stay low

and my final example is apache itself
