Afternoon, I'm running Plone 2.5.3 on SLES 10. With a separate Apache server ( using mod rewrite to access Plone.

Recently been experiencing slow performance loading pages. When I checked the ZOPE events.log there are lots of:

2011-02-09T13:20:18 ERROR ZServer uncaptured python exception, closing channel <ZServer.HTTPServer.zhttp_channel connected at 0x2aaaacaf97a0 channel#: 349 requests:> (socket.error:(104, 'Connection reset by peer') [/opt/Plone-2.5.3/Python-2.4.4/lib/python2.4/|initiate_send|219] [/opt/Plone-2.5.3/lib/python/ZServer/medusa/|send|417] [/opt/Plone-2.5.3/Python-2.4.4/lib/python2.4/|send|332])

I found a post which suggested this error is just caused by users navigaing away from a page before the request is complete, can anyone confirm this is normal Zope behaviour? Maybe I just need to reduce the log level?

This is indeed normal behaviour, the errors are indeed caused by prematurely closing the socket (before the request has been fully read or the response has been fully sent).
