I'm building monitoring system that will detect how many (idle) requests are currently being processed. The method that I'm using to detect this is by connecting to http://localhost/server-status .
The question is, if Apache can't serve any more new connection (ex:
MaxClients reached the top) how am I able to detect apache statistic then? Is it possible that Apache is smart enough to ignore
MaxClients configuration for connections from localhost?
Any help is appreciated.
