Hi, Below is the issue encountered when i am trying to use apache 2.4 to validate performance using the benchmarking tool(ab tool).
ab is invoked with 2000/1000 concurrent requests and subjected to 80000 cgi requests. The module enabled is mod_cgid. Occurs with worker/event mpm enabled MPM configuration is: <IfModule mpm_worker_module> ServerLimit 80 StartServers 3 MinSpareThreads 75 MaxSpareThreads 250 ThreadsPerChild 25 MaxRequestWorkers 2000 MaxConnectionsPerChild 0 </IfModule> ================================================ 2000 concurrent requests Benchmarking x.x.x.x (be patient) socket: Too many open files (24) OR 1000 concurrent requests Benchmarking x.x.x.x (be patient) Completed 8000 requests apr_socket_recv: Connection timed out (110) Total of 8972 requests completed ================================================ This occurs on RHEL as well as on HP-UX. Please help if anyone has encountered the same problem. Thanks, RS
