I had the same thing happen today on the original server running on an 820 under V5R2. The web server just shutdown. I was also under a heavy workload. This is not the first time this has happened. We do not get a heavy load very often but when we do the server shutting down has not been uncommon. We have been trying to get moved to the Apache server but an app we purchased will not run under Apache without an upgrade. We just stopped using this app and can now migrate and after today that might become a top priority. I am not an expert on web servers but each time this has happened and we talk to IBM we end up thinking it was a problem with the number of threads available to the server. Too few or too many and the server crashes. That has been my experience >>> franz400@xxxxxxxxxxxx 01/05/05 8:01 PM >>> Bob - what are you serving? static html or dynamic? lot's of pictures? How much memory in the 170? what's the cpw? any heavy sql or rpg processing? I've got a customer with a S10 512 meg 73 cpw serving rpg cgi that sometimes hits this volume. Only have a performance problem when some sql queries have to roll thru all records in a big file (where x like %yy%) but never crashes. Are you saying crash as in restart the server? Did you get any job logs of some other problem or just timeouts? jim ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bob Cozzi" <cozzi@xxxxxxxxx> To: "'Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries'" <web400@xxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, January 05, 2005 6:26 PM Subject: [WEB400] Hit capacity of Classic HTTP Server and a module 170 > Hi, > This morning my little old 170 running IBM's Classic HTTP Server on OS/400 > V4.5 "crashed". > The cause for this was due to extremely high volume of hits during a 2 hour > period. > When my free email newsletter went out last night and everybody on the east > coast got in this morning, the server started to get very, very busy.
