My manager...

drives me absolutely up the wall!!!

Basically, all I do all day is review slide decks.  Day after day after day.  (The paperclip icon in Thunderbird makes my heart race.)  Anyway, today I'm walking through yet another slide deck when I get to a slide that starts out like this:

Apache Specific Tuning
 ListenBacklog 16384
 ServerLimit 8192
 MaxClients 8192
 MaxRequestsPerChild 0
 StartServers 128
 MinSpareServers 20
 MaxSpareServers 128

There's no further information!  That's the end!  Really!

/dev/tcp is ROTFL thinking about that ListenBacklog directive.  The swapper is looking for some extra volumes.  fork() and kill() and exit() are trying to get a room at the beach for the weekend.

It started to feel like I had held a match in my hand way too long as I started typing a furious response (which I had to delete).  I tried a slightly more tactful approach and had to delete that too.  After walking around the house five or ten times, I came back in and responded with a suggestion that I could cover that material properly at the Web Stack Deep Dive session at CommunityOne West in San Francisco next Wednesday.  He agreed.  Wish me luck!

2010 Update: I looked for the presentation recently and couldn't find it, so I uploaded it to this blog here.

Great, so something good comes out of it! ;-)

Jyri <-- organizing the deep dive session and looking forward to Jeff's Apache info.
