  • Apache load balancer with mpm worker

    Hi Everybody,

    I have configured apache load balancer with mpm (apache multi threading) parameter as "worker". I also enabled mod_status module to check the status.
    But, when we have Sticky Session enabled in mod_proxy apache load balancer configuration, the requests are not creating as child threads, which is giving the feeling that apache is not working with multi threading.

    The steps i took was following:

    1. ./configure apache with-mpm=worker parameter.
    2. Enable mpm configuration in httpd.conf as

    <IfModule mpm_worker_module>
    StartServers 1
    MaxClients 150
    MinSpareThreads 25
    MaxSpareThreads 75
    ThreadsPerChild 50
    MaxRequestsPerChild 0

    , but how do i know , or how can i check whether this configuration is working? Even if, i enable mod_status , it doesn't give me the clear picture.

    The current architecture is:

    One load balancer with mpm=worker enabled (only this is exposed)

    2 child servers without threading enabled.

    Kindly help me out .
