If this is a dedicated web server, you sure are configuring it wrong. First off, you tell it to start 8 workers, then immediately kill off three of them to meet the MaxSpareServers. That's pretty minor, however, as it only happens at startup. MaxSpareServers of 5 is pretty low for a busy webserver. If the site is seeing a lot of traffic, or the traffic is erratic, you're forcing Apache to try to constantly tune itself to exactly what the load is. If this server is dedicated to webserving, you'd do better to raise MaxSpareServers to something like 25, so you have some spare capacity when the load spikes instead of forcing Apache to do a lot of forking, then kill off a lot of processes, then fork a lot of them again ... But that discussion belongs on the Apache lists ... -- Bill Moran Collaborative Fusion Inc. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
