I'm running an apache2 2.2.9 webserver with modpython and mpm_worker_module.
The current config for the mpm is
ServerLimit 32 StartServers 10 MaxClients 800 MinSpareThreads 25 MaxSpareThreads 75 ThreadsPerChild 25 MaxRequestsPerChild 0
The server has 1G of ram and a 100Mbit connection.
Checking netstat -na | grep ESTABLISHED | wc -l gives me a number between 50 - 60. The load is about 1.0 Every pageload is also cached by memcached.
I can't see why the server is so slow in responding to new connections, sometimes droping them completely?
Also tried disabling iptables to make sure it's not because of a full state table or something like that.
The only thing in dmesg is a lot of spam about "TCP: Treason uncloaked!"
Even connections to localhost with apache2ctl status fails, so it shouldn't be modpython related. When the status do work, it shows around 110-128 requests being processed. About half are status C (closing connection), lots of _ (Waiting for connection), the rest being R and W
