I have a site configured with apache and tomcat (mod_jk).
Apache and tc are on diffrent servers.
The problem is that in case of network problems (apache host and tc host don't communicate anymore) , apache proceses reach max childs and apache need restart. even if apache doesn't reach maxChilds, tomcat became unavailable in 2-3 hours - it reaches its maximum processes value.
this is big problem because the site has a very high load - even 30 sec -1 min not communication time is a problem.
I would like to configure the worker to close the connection if idle for a period, but this should not afftect the performance, or the actiive jk connections..
