If anyone knows the answer to this, PLEEEEASE let me know (servers are under very heavy load).
I currently have the following httpd configuraton for worker:
This should, in theory, only allow a maximum of 60 simultaneous connections (ServerLimit times MaxThreads, or MaxClients). However, when looking at my server-status a few minutes ago, I saw
165 requests currently being processed, 12 idle workers
This is so far out of the range, I can't believe it. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here? It appears that I'm doing the right thing by the documentation. I did also make sure that I stopped and started Apache after setting ServerLimit.
I'd be so grateful if someone could shed some light on this.
p.s. I'm adding more memory tomorrow when it arrives. I just need to handle this issue today before it arrives. Thanks.
