I am trying to load test my apache server with jmeter (10 hosts, 10 threads) with various mpm config. I tried various settings from maxclient 150 to 3000, but there is negligible difference in the average response time.
The cpu usage reaches around 10% and the ram usage is much less around 100 mb or so in total. The box on which apache server runs is a dual core,16 GB box.
Any idea why the mpm config changes are not having any affect on the response time ?
edit : It is a standard apache which server which serves static content like images, js files, css files etc
Regarding 10 threads : I am really really sorry, I didn't explained the threads part fully. I did tried different values of thread from 6 to 30. for both the configs the degrade was similiar. For 150 maxclient settings it changed from ~45ms to ~430ms, for the 3000 maxclient settings it changed from ~45ms to ~420ms. I am not sure where I am making the mistake.
