In my application, we are using Apache 2.4 Windows Server.
Below is my winnt configuration
<IfModule mpm_winnt_module> ThreadsPerChild 1900 MaxConnectionsPerChild 8000 </IfModule>
According to the above configuration, a new process is created in server for every 8000 requests.
In my application every day 500000 transactions are coming. What value in MaxConnectionsPerChild gives the good performance.
Below is my questions:
1. How much time its required for creating a New Process? 2. While creating the new process, If any requests comes to web server will it accept or not? 3. If the request hit reached 8000, will it drop all the current processing request or the request will move to new process. 4. If the request hit reached 8000, If any requests comes to web server will it accept or not? 5. Winnt module have only one process, so its good or bad to keep non zero values in MaxConnectionsPerChild ?
I didn't have the reference in internet to finding the answer for above question. Can someone please help me to get clarified on above things?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
