Apache ... internal dummy connection
 
I see several occurrences of this line in the "/var/log/httpd/access_log" file.


::1 - - [29/Nov/2006:17:39:04 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 14083 "-" "Apache/2.2.2 (Fedora) (internal dummy connection)"


What does this mean?

It's away for Apache to signal its children that it's time to die.
This is usually nothing to be worried about.

If you are seeing many child processes spawn and die, you may want to
have a look at your MinSpareServers and MaxSpareServers directives,
and your MaxRequestsPerChild.

I experienced the same on sles10. From the little I've found from google, it's caused by an internal signalling mechanism in apache-2.2+.

I got rid of it by setting MaxSpareServers (50) to a value greater than MinSpareServers (20).

It worked for me also, can any one tell me why?
