Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

One of my web servers went crazy this morning and showed "151 requests/sec - 2.7 GB/second - 140.7 MB/request" the normal is like "11.1 requests/sec - 65.6 kB/second - 5.9 kB/request"

I don't even think that kind of through put is possible on my server. It was also listing odd symbols for the urls and the amount of data transfered for connections was off the meter

Has anyone seen anything like this before and know what might be causing it?

I posted the full mod_status output here http://pastie.org/916066

I think I should have asked the question "How do I debug a busy apache server running lots of custom php code?" –  James Hackett Apr 16 '10 at 14:42

Possibly a recursive 404 on a page that isn't hit frequently?
