Performance Tuning tab

You can use the Performance Tuning tab, as shown in Figure 15-15, to set connection options for your server.

You can configure the following options:

1 Servers: The Max Number of Connections setting determines how many simultaneous requests your server will accept. The maximum number that you can set here is 256.

1 Connections: The Connection Timeout is how long the server waits, in seconds, for transmission and receipt of information in a communication session. You can select to either allow unlimited requests or change the number of requests accepted by entering another number in the appropriate field.

1 Requests per Connection: Marking the Allow Persistent Connections check box enables the Timeout for Next Connection value to take effect: The server waits that amount of time, in seconds, before closing the session. A large number here can cause your server performance to slow down.

Saving Your Settings and Restarting the Web Server

After you finish configuring your Web server, you need to save your changes to the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and restart the Web server for the changes to take effect. To do this, proceed as follows:

1. Click OK and then Yes when asked whether you want to save and exit.

2. At a terminal prompt, and as the root user, enter the command service httpd restart

The server restarts, and your changes take effect.
