Hi to all, This is my first post, and I want to say that this webpage have been so useful to me. I have a problem with Apache2 and several TIME_WAIT connections. The hardware is a Dual Xeon 3,6 Ghz, and 3,5 Gb of RAM. The systems have: Apache 2.2.4 PHP 4.4.4 Mysql 4.1.22 Eaccelerator 0.5 When I start apache, it start to create lots of TIME_WAITs connections, in a few minutes I can reach 800 or 900, and only 20 or 25 ESTABLISHED connections. ServerLimit 240 MaxClients 240 Timeout 120 KeepAlive On MaxKeepAliveRequests 100 StartServers 50 MinSpareServers 30 MaxSpareServers 45 MaxRequestsPerChild 100 KeepAliveTimeout 5 The SO is Debian 3.1 and the kernel is 2.6.8-3-686-smp. Thanks to all.
