I'm a newbie to server admin, but I'm trying to get my head around our Apache server. I got a shock when I tried to tail the Apache error logs. Even after greping the logs so I was only seeing actual errors, I was getting about 1 error per second. The Apache Server Status page says the server is handling ~6.3 requests per second.
This seems like an insanely high rate of errors to me, but I'm unfamiliar with how most servers in the wild perform.
Am I looking at a server in desperate need of help (as I suspect)?
Or is this normal?
