Httpd Optimization

Apr 22, 2009

right ive got a server thats getting battered at the moment by lots of apache processes, ive moved sql off to a seperate box (with private lan so thats fine) but now i need to optimize/replace apache with something less intensive on resources, only problem is im using plesk on this server so i am not sure if i can change the webserver app?

using apache 2.2 with prefork mpm

My.cnf Optimization

Feb 27, 2008

MySQL keep giving me error like this:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't create a new thread (errno 11); if you are not out of available memory, you can consult the manual for a possible OS-dependent bug in /home/user/public_html/file.php on line 400

My server has 5GB SWAP, 2GB RAM

key buffer = 512m

sort buffer = 4m
max connection = 500

i learn using a formula key buffer + (read+sort)*max connection

XFS Fs Optimization

Feb 12, 2008

I hosted users files on a xfs partition.

I use SATA II disks, and sometimes load is increased when ftp activity is intensive.

Drive where users files are hosted returns values like

hdparm -Tt /dev/sdb

Timing cached reads: 5050 MB in 2.00 seconds = 2528.72 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 4 MB in 3.30 seconds = 1.21 MB/sec

I noticed a load increase specially when I delete a directory with many small files.

ways to optimyze a xfs partition?

PHP/sql Optimization

Jun 14, 2007

currently im on a VPS server and things are fine normally. However whenever there are like 20 users on my site (browser based text game) things get ugly. The sql queries are all needed and don't think it can get much more effiecent.

Anyways my website is very dynamic all information is changing every second.

For example a user when every page they go to or refresh their account is being set to time() to show that they are online at that second. Processor load gets up to like 6 at times and that is when it is virtually impossible to connect to the site.

Is there anythign you recommend? mysql is the top then when i login via ssh and run 'top'

Nginx Optimization?

May 23, 2009

Well, I decided giving it a shot.

I have a large proxy, are getting ~3k pageviews/day.

I only got 128 MB RAM on my VPS, so no panels works on it (not even kloxo/lxa). I would guess apache wont do it in the long run either.

So I decided to go with nginx. But I feel it isn't quite good optimized, as it sometimes takes like 1 minute to load the page.

Here is my current config:

# This is the main Nginx configuration file.
# More information about the configuration options is available on
# * the English wiki -
# * the Russian documentation -

# Main Module - directives that cover basic functionality

user nginx;
worker_processes 12;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
#error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log notice;
#error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log info;

pid /var/run/;

# Events Module

events {
worker_connections 1024;

# HTTP Core Module

http {
include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] $request '
'"$status" $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log main;

sendfile on;
#tcp_nopush on;

#keepalive_timeout 0;
keepalive_timeout 65;

#gzip on;

# Load config files from the /etc/nginx/conf.d directory
include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;

# The default server
server {
listen 80;
server_name _;

#charset koi8-r;

#access_log logs/host.access.log main;

location / {
root /usr/share/nginx/html;
index index.php index.html index.htm;

error_page 404 /404.html;
location = /404.html {
root /usr/share/nginx/html;

# redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
root /usr/share/nginx/html;

# proxy the PHP scripts to Apache listening on
#location ~ .php$ {
# proxy_pass;

# pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on
location ~ .php$ {
root html;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/nginx/html$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;

# deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
# concurs with nginx's one

Any ideas on better optimizing?

Apache Optimization

May 25, 2009

I'm looking to get some tips to optimize my Apache webservers. Now i have 2 apache servers with load balancer. If someone can guide me and bring some tips for this purpose is highly appreciated.

Also, i would like to know about disadvantages of enabling KeepAlive. Recently i have enabled it and found my site load much better. But the disadvantage (that i experienced personally) is after stop browsing for a while (about 40-60 minutes) i need to keep triggering the URL of site several times to get enter the website. If not i can't get into it and it likes the site giving no response at all.

Services And Optimization

Jul 25, 2009

I am switching from shared hosting to managed VPS. I have minimal knowledge of UNIX/Apache, pretty good with PHP and programming in general.

So, what I have now is my VPS, with 512mb of ram, CentOS, cpanel and my two sites, not live yet, that is, I haven't changed dns records in the registrar.

I want to try to optimize the box or whatever is the correct name for it and understand the whole thing better. Mainly to learn more, I dot' think I'll be pressed for memory or bandwidth for now. Still, at least knowing things I can optimize for speed of space.

Few things that I assume should allow for some simplification and RAM savings(hopefully) is that:

a) Both sites are hobby sites, not very big load. Few thousand visitors a day. Traffic is around 10gb monthly combined.

b) Both sites are mine, nobody else on that box, so I don't have to worry about customers screwing things up and caging things internally.

Based on that, I don't really need email for the second site domain.

When I run top command I see 2 exim processes running. Is that normal, or is it because I have 2 domains registered there? And if yes can one be disabled?

Same applies to pop3-login and imap-login processes, 2 copies of each. Can I have just one of each, i.e. exim, pop3-login and imap-login?

Next, I selected not to run log analyzer cpanellogd for 21 hours, i.e. it'll run for 3 hours a day. I assume that should be sufficient for the site like mine?

I did read sticky about securing the site and quite a bit about Apache/mysql optimizations.

Apache 2 Optimization

Server/ Optimization

Apr 18, 2007

i am having quite problem with my server i cant get it to optimize it. During peak times the load goes beyond 10 sometimes 20 to 50 sometimes its just under 1. I have my webserver running on P4 Core 2 6300, 1 GB ram, 250 HDD, on CentOS 4.4 (kernel 2.6.9-42.0.10) etc. It has cpanel/whm running Apache 1.3.7, php 4.4, mysql 4.1, mailscanner, eaccelerator, etc i dont know really what other info to show you.

I host about 200 accounts and there are 4 large php forums (not like WHT) running on it. Sometimes pages stop loading especially these forums have to refresh to get page load.

During day there are approx 700-900 connections.

Previously i had phpsuexec and the load never went beyond 4-5, i have removed it to install eaccelerator.

VPS Memory Optimization

Jun 9, 2007

My troubles started about a month ago, on a Windows 2003 VPS (clean, no plesk/cpanel):
Every ting worked fine until, for no obvious reason, IIS started to consume too much memory, I tried separating sites (two) in separate application pools, adjusting recycle triggers - nothing worked, sooner or later worker processes would use too much memory and fail, only way to fix the problem was to restart it.

At this point I would like to mention that:
- MySQL is optimized for low memory usage (and task manager never said otherwise)
- PHP is limited to 20MB RAM, only few modules were enabled
- the only other application running is WinDNS, and it doesn't seam RAM hungry

So a few days ago I decided to kill IIS/app server role altogether and install apache, something I should have done long time ago.
Everything went smooth, VPS performance dramatically increased, memory usage was negotiable... at first.

As time goes by, apache consumed more memory (httpd.exe comes to about 80MB in 12 hours), it doesn't seam to be dependant on site traffic, and it doesn't drop, server didn't fail once yet and I have apache on scheduled graceful restarts every 24hrs.

I didn't try setting a MaxRequestsPerChild value, I'll keep that as a last option because I really want to get to the bottom of this

So... I suspect it could be PHP, the only thing that's common in both scenarios. I did upgrade to the latest version during Apache installation though.

Win 2003
Apache 2.2
PHP 5.2.3
MySQL 5.0

What could be causing this "leak"?

Server Optimization

Dec 26, 2008

I just got new server:

2.0 GHz, Xeon 5405 (Harpertown) (Quad Core) with CentOS 5 installed. It has 4 gigs of RAM.

I would like to optimize it for php/mysql based forum.

Any suggestions on how to tweak my.cnf or httpd.conf or anything else. My main goal is to optimize it for php/mysql.

I understand I can leave everything the way it is, but I would rather optimize my server, if I can.

Like should I install some kind of memory cache and if yes, which one? Should I edit default settings of PHP?

MySQL Optimization

Dec 11, 2007

just got a new server and got my site up and running on it perfectly but ive noticed its a bit slower than my old server and i think this is down to my incorrctly optimized mysql setup. ive used the my.cnf off my old server with some minor edits but im wondering what people can suggest i change for the following server spec

Everything from phpbb_search_wordmatch takes more then 11 sec Query time.

How can I optimze this and lower the Query time to something like 1 or 2.
Some adivce would be helpful me not that good with mysql.

WHM / Cpanel Optimization

Jul 11, 2007

anyone have any tips on how to optimize WHM / cpanel to run at top performance on 256-512mb guaranteed VPS accounts?

I've had several VPS providers in the past, and each one of them run webpages and LAMP stuff fine, but as soon as I bring up cpanel /whm, it either crashes the VPS altogether, or cpanel and whm run very slow, choppy, pretty much bogging the whole VPS down, doesn't seem to matter if the VPS is running on 256 or 512, still same issues. I run on Virtuozzo, which I don't know if thats part of the problem, or not,

really all I use out of cpanel/ WHM is the standard things like

creating/deleting accounts
RVSkin, Fantastico

basically what a reseller would use. the rest of the stuff I do not use, so I was just wondering if there was a tutorial on how to strip down WHM / cpanel somehow so it would run better on VPS accounts? or if someone could write one up perhaps?

Game Server Optimization?

Feb 18, 2008

I hope some of you folks could give me some pointers here. I have a server that is used for a gaming clan's purposes. Nothing major as far as games go, but what I got I want running at peak efficiency.

The most important is the Counter-Strike source. I really need the kernel frequency to be tweaked for this. The number one question is can I merely modify the existing config file and recompile that or do I need to start all over? If I could do that is it something like make old or something to that matter?

I am running a couple other servers as well, but there is never a time where all the servers have anyone in them. I keep everything running. After installing some weird stuffs here and there I got the memory usage to go down. I think. Regarding a scenario of having more than one instance of a game, is there any way to share memory between them?

My Swap. Is there a way to force idling games to move to it instead of using physical memory?

The kernel is what I really need to take care of. I'm still somewhat of a n00b and have just switched from centos to debian to top it off. So any tips would make my day. Thanks for reading me.

Server Performance Optimization

May 7, 2009

Hi"Optimization of computing resources has long been an important management issue. One of its aspects concerns server scalability and the question of whether an organization should scale-up or scale out.Assume that the computing performance of the servers can be measured by variable 0 <=p, that their total cost is given by "c" and the relationship between server performance and cost is defined by c=&#945;p^&#946;"

a. What is the cost-performance elasticity(&#1106;), precisely?

b. What would be the range of values for &#1106; that would be expected by moore's law and what are its implications?

c. What would be the range of values for &#1106; that would lead managers to scale-out? Draw a graph and throughly explain the implications.

Vbulletin Server Optimization

Nov 13, 2008

I'm on a dedicated server and the httpd service of the server keeps going down which results in downtime for the number of hours until i dont realise that the site is down.

So when I realise the site is down, I ask the hosting support to look into the issue, they tell me the server loads are high and ask me to upgrade even when I just upgraded the server last month.

Generally the forum has around (250 - 300 members) + guests visitors online and is in the alexa top 20k sites.

The first thing I would want to do is hire a person who specializes in server optimization but then I have heard a lot of bad things like the server admin stealing databases and selling it in open market.

The second thing I wanted to do is contact vbulletin for server optimization but they need me to give them server specs and I dont know how to obtain them.

Server And MySQL Optimization

Jul 2, 2008

My server is running a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ (1662 MHz)CPU

I only host one site, a vb forum on my server and its killing the CPU with only 80-100 people online.

The load averages are:
23.73 (1 mins) , 20.39 (5 mins) , 10.88 (15 mins)

and these are the processes that are making it slow:

Linux Kernel Optimization

Sep 12, 2007

starting a GSP (Game Server Provider) within the next 4-6 months.

One big factor I will need to tackle is optimizing the linux kernel on CentOS for game servers.

This entails accelerating the kernel to allow for 1000fps in Counter strike and Counter Strike Source, as well as tailoring the kernel to provide very reliable server side fps.

My question is, what would be some good sources about possibly doing this, also how would I go about rebuilding the kernel, and is it worth learning how to do myself even though my knowledge is fairly minimal in Linux?

Also does anyone know of specifics about what I need to modify in order to do this.

Server Optimization Settings

Apr 9, 2007

I have purchased a proxy website using phproxy script hosted at dedicated server. Its now about 4 months and everything is fine but i want to move my site to another dedicated server provider because current one has some issues.

When i purchased that site seller told me that he has optimized server and installed some scripts {server scripts} to get best out of proxy website. Now seller is out of my contact.

I am very much pleased with current server settings but i need to move. So i want to make sure that i can optimize new server and install same scripts to keep going with current performance.

I only know about http.conf settings and i have noted it ... plz help me about copying every other settings which that guy had done to optimize the server and how can i know which and where those scripts are installed which has made server quite efficient?

Server Optimization Company

Jan 15, 2007

Can anyone recommend a good company or someone that would be able to optimize Apache and MySQL on my server? I've slightly configured Apache so that it works well with my server so I'm mainly looking for someone to optimize MySQL (since it's using a lot of cpu).

The server load is pretty high so I'm hoping to reduce it before having to upgrade to a new server.

VBulletin Optimization On Two Servers

Jul 22, 2007

I've recently moved a popular forum from one dedicated server to two dedicated servers.

1 server for HTTPD
1 server for MYSQL

The forum is running very slowly, even though server load is low on both servers.

I have tried different mysql optimizations but nothing seems to be working.

Would anyone be willing to help me solve this issue? If so, please PM me. I am happy to pay for your time.

What Sites Are Best For MySQL/Apache Optimization

Jan 27, 2007

I just switched to a new server - I went from a Dual Opteron 248 with 3GB of RAM to a Dual Clovertown with 4GB of RAM. Yet, despite having mild traffic right now, my load is rather high and my memory usage is like 80% (which is ridiculous, since that would mean I would be maxing out on the old box).

For some reason, my servers usually lose access when I get around 400 people on TEXT-BASED, non-MySQL pages? How is that possible? I have really solid servers, yet people running basic Pentiums with 1 or 2GB never run into this issue.

Is there any good, cheap site that would be able to properly optimize mySQL and Apache to lower the load and figure out why the memory usage is so high? Platinum Server Management never really got this done, so even though they're great for other support issues, please don't recommend them.
