I'm observing following strange behavior on Centos6.5 with Fast-cgi (mod_fcgi): if the site is actively used at some point all it's fcgi processes get stalled. In server-status I see that the processes have status Working while their Idle counter is increasing. The connections to website in browser appear as stalled/loading (no timeout or other error). The processes get killed/respawned after 'IdleTimeout 300' and then new processes are also in the same state. This does not however affect other sites on the same server. Code: Process: .php-fcgi-starter (/var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/web53/.php-fcgi-starter) Pid Active Idle Accesses State 30823 4054 64 79 Working 20125 7490 65 128 Working 28781 4686 129 78 Working This can be reproduced with simple wget -r website - after a while wget will get stuck. The only way to recover from this state is to restart httpd. I have one site with mod_itk and doesn't seem to be affected, so it appears that this is the issue with mod_fcgi. Did anyone else see such behavior? Or may be this is the known issue? Any help would be much appreciated.
