Shut off keepalive on the site

Postby Janzert » Wed Nov 24, 2010 1:30 pm

Just FYI, with the reddit pounding the server is staggering under the load. I noticed that the server had keep alives enabled with limits of 15 seconds and 100 requests. While this is a benefit when the site isn't under high load, it means an apache process is tied up for 15 seconds on each connection. I went ahead and just shut KeepAlive off in /etc/apache2.conf. This has made the site quite a bit more responsive.

Awesome! Good find, Janzert.

The Reddit traffic might be my bad, hehe. I posted a thing on Reddit yesterday evening that pointed at one of space.invaders' game replays. Might have been another post that I don't know about though.

Oh wow, check the Google Analytics. We've already broken the daily pageview record today, and it's only 5 PM. Smashing.

Fuck you Reddit! (j/k, I love you guys)
