While looking at my sites' server-status page, it shows 68 requests
being processed (changes) and how ever many idle servers (changes,
While looking at the information below it, ie the connection
information, it shows 0-149 (MaxClients 150 in httpd.conf). The strange
thing I do not understand is why is it showing 0 - 149 with some having
a low SS (seconds since beginning of most recent request for that
connection) and some having a high one.
Some show 5 (round about #) meaning it is active (in my eyes). The
highest shows 68516 (Seconds since last request).
I would have thought that the connection with the highest wait would
eventually die and free the memory, server, etc.
Does this mean that the full 150 were opened, but, the threads that are
running are the ones that have a PID? If so, what happens to the other
ones that are not running?
Can someone explain this to me.
