Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 89154
LTC2034-apache maxed at 256 connections
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Please fill in each of the sections below.
Hardware Environment: iSeries
Software Environment: 7.1 refresh (64bit kernel)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start lots of http connections
Apache on 7.1 redhat is built to max out at 256 connections. It'd be nice it
was higher - like 2048 (or more?). On iSeries, the workload estimators can't
even run enough to get an idea of the performance of the system because of this
fixed for 7.1 pSeries and iSeries in apache-1.3.27-18.104.22.168p

------- Additional Comment #12 From Michael Ranweiler 2003-06-23 17:41 -------
The binary is fixed, but the httpd.conf file is still set with MaxClients 150 -
I believe this needs to be set to 2048 to take advantage of the
HARD_SERVER_LIMIT in httpd.h. I think this is pretty much adequately addressed
in the errata notice:
An enhanced version of the Apache HTTP server is available for iSeries and
pSeries systems. This release increases the maximum value of the MaxClients
configuration parameter to 2048. This value represents the maximum number
of child processes the httpd daemon will start.
Closing this bug as verified.
