Dummy connections spamming SSL error log
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
The Apache 2.0 pipe-of-death code makes dummy connections to the local server to
force a child process to quit, and these may go to the SSL port, causing
mod_ssl to regularly leave log messages in the ssl_error_log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load httpd and mod_ssl packages
2. start server
3. benchmark to port 80 with 'ab' or so on
Many error messages like below in ssl_error_log:
[Mon Aug 26 19:17:30 2002] [error] SSL handshake interrupted by system [Hint:
Stop button pressed in browser?!]
No error messages in ssl_error_log.
Simple workaround to use the first configured listener for dummy connections in
2.0.40-3, a config change (e.g. an SSL-only server) can still thwart this.
Workaround seems sufficient.
