On Apache 2.0.49 (worker) I encountered problems on
heavy server load, when I ran apaches ab2 benchmark
utility for test. I had no success with the unofficial
patch from "nobody" posted here under patches which
should fix the multiple thread problem. The patched
module was of course compiling and it was running so
far, but with the settings working under 20030510
version I was not able to log in any more and I could
not find a reson for the problem, - in no logfile a
message was found, why the login failed.
So I tried it on Apache 1.3.31, but mod_auth_mysql
does not work reliable either. When the keep alive
option in .htaccess is on, open DB connection threads
are accumulating. I tested this again with apaches ab
benchmark utility. After a few hundred requests, the DB
is running out of threads. When the "keep alive"
feature is turned off, mod _auth_mysql will work, but
with reduced performance.
Is there a plan to create a new release ? I think it
would be nice to have a major release covering all the
issues. Currently I can't use it for production.
