We are using IBM HTTPServer 1.3.28. In built with Apache 1.3.x running under RHEL3 machine.
All traffic to our application server (WAS6 on other server under RHEL3) are routed via Webserver(IHS 1.3.28).
What happens is when multiple connections (already set to 1000) hits certain range our clients are facing delays in connections.
We have proper load balanced mechanism before choosing web servers, but we provide connecting to existing sessions options for our clients. In this case if a client unfortunately face any n/w prob, still he can connect to his prev session. He will be connected to the same webserver where he was previously.
Almost everyday our clients are reporting that they are facing if maximum connections reach certain limit, say above 600 (but it is set to 1000) they are facing delys in connections.
Can any one help me to move in right direction with this multi-thred issue with web servers(IHS)?
Looking forward for you response!
