Is there someone who has experience with webservers with apache on it with 100000 hits aday.
The site is in pure html. The memory is over the 1 GB. Is it possible to load this site in memory?
The problem is that the load average is going over the 3.
What can i do about it ? Some settings from the httpd.conf :
Maximum headers in request : default
Maximum request line size: default
Maximum requests per server process : 500
Minimum spare server processes: 256
Maximum concurrent requests: 4096
Maximum spare server processes: 512
Initial server processes: 512
Keepalive: on
Keepalivetimout: 15
Keepaliverequests 100
Timeout: 300

Can some one tell me what settings I can try to get a lower load average on the server.
By the way the server is ultra wide scsi.

Any hint/tip is welcome... heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp :-)
