Apache configuration for very high traffic

view full story

http://serverfault.com – We have a very high configuration server which is holding 2 websites with considerably good traffic. In peak hours we have 3000 to 4000 simultaneous users. But the current configuration of our apache seems to be wrong, as it hangs or makes the site very slow in the peak hours. in the mid day when the traffic comes down to 2000 then in behaves well. My system configuration is :: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7- 2830 @ 2.13GHz * 30 processors with 8 core each. Ram :: 128 GB Apache conf :: Timeout 60 KeepAlive On MaxKeepAliveRequests 500 KeepAliveTimeout 3 <IfModule prefork.c> (HowTos)
