I've also placed this question in the forum "novell.support.zenworks.linux-management.7x.install-setup",
(date 06 march 2007) but no response there yet.

I therefore repeat myself in this forum as well, hoping for an answer..:


Scenario:
OES SP2
ZfD 7.0.1 SP1

Issue:
Apache optimization for MiddleTier

Details:
In NetWare, an optimization of the Apache server was recommended for the ZfD MiddleTier server.
In the adminserv.conf file, a parameter should be tuned like this:
ThreadsPerChild 512 (increased to value 512, instead of the default value 50).

Does this apply for the Apache/MiddleTier when running OES also?
If so - in which file/chapter shall this paramater be set in the OES Apache server?

I'm asking due to the following reoccuring issue in our MiddleTier server:
Sometimes users can no longer log into the MiddleTier server - the service simply seems to stop.

The Apache log then typically shows lists like this:

Simply restarting the novell-xsrvd in the OES server solves the problem.
Maybe this has to do with some limits or buffers somewhere?
Any suggestions for solving this problem, or for tuning/optimizing the Apache / MiddleTier on OES?
