Here at NEXCESS.NET, we like rsync better. File backups and restores tend to be easier to do with rsync than dump. You can also pass it through ssh for security. However, depending on your specific situation, it may be more advantageous to use dump over rsync.
That’s right pascal, the main apache config is /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, which includes all *.conf files in /etc/httpd/conf.d/
Also, It appears that Apache has been compiled with the prefork.c module.
When you use a PIV with Hyper Threading, is it not better to compile it with the MPM worker.c module ?
So far the jury is out on this pascal and it’s unclear which is better. The fact that you have a PIV 3.0 shouldn’t make a huge difference in choosing an MPM. That said, I myself haven’t had a lot of time to test the worker MPM and I’d sure like to a bit more. From what I’ve read it’s less stable, for what that’s worth, but I assume any more that any instability has been addressed.
Is it a good tweaks to see in “Top” the average size of Httpd and divide in total memory to set the maxclients ?
Honestly, I ususally let the given boxes client load dictate maxclients. If you divide the avg httpd size into total mem you’re sure to swap if you hit maxclients so I’d just shoot lower and if you ever actually hit maxclients then readjust as needed.
