2015-06-10 01:30:06 Nano.net.tr description System : Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS Package : apache2 - 2.4.7-1ubuntu4.4 Description : When a reload invoked by logrotate; 2-3 time in a week apache2 stops responding requests in our web server. While in this period, clients can connect but waits indefinitely for a reply. Then apache2 needs a full restart to start server web pages. Reload does not work in this situation. After some research we found that Apache2 has a GracefulShutdownTimeout directive that kill remaining requests after a timeout. But this directive not set (defaults to zero) in default Ubuntu config. ( http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/mod/mpm_common.html#gracefulshutdowntimeout ) This should have a reasonable value in default config. Expected : Apache2 reloads and continues to serve web pages without human interaction. Happened : Apache2 waits for remaining requests indefinitely and needs a restart.
