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

when comparing the output of mod_status and apachetop, there is about a 10 hits/sec difference.

  • mod_status shows 2.91 hits/sec
  • apachetop (given the apache access log) shows about 12 hits/sec

12 hits/sec is the right answer. why is mod_status showing a much lower value?
