I have a few large files on my server (namely a txt file with 32 million digits of pi in it) on my webserver, and occasionally when I access it in a web browser, it might work once or twice, but if I access it any more than that, it seems to crash. What's weird is that the server itself isn't crashing (and I don't even think Apache is crashing) but all of a sudden, the server stops serving content (I usually get a timeout error). The server itself has got decent performance. Does anyone know why this keeps happening?
