This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I was going through the Apache documentation and found this -
ThreadsPerChild: This directive is new. It tells the server how many threads it should use. This is the maximum number of connections the server can handle at once, so be sure to set this number high enough for your site if you get a lot of hits. The recommended default is ThreadsPerChild 50.
I have a basic question, does it really mean that the Apache server can accept only say, 50 requests at a time ?! How do the websites handle more users then ?
thanks for replying. I am doing this research for embedded systems and I fear that our client expects about 1000 hits/requests in one second I have yet to understand the full implication of this, but have to figure out... ( pardon me, I am thinking aloud ).
