I'm migrating my servers from Rackspace over to Amazon. Our servers are running mod_perl and the connect times are much longer on the Amazon server (oftentimes up to 1 second just to connect) with the same config. Ten concurrent connection can be 100-500ms in connect time alone.
The actually processing times are very fast. The perl script we're using for testing doesn't dip into a database.
Changing the size of the EC2 instance does not affect the connect time in any way.
I assume that means that something's up with the Apache config, but I don't know where to look.
Can anyone recommend where to look/troubleshoot?
