Hi there,

i have a nodejs application behind an apache webserver like this:

apache 2.4.42 (win64)
       |- mod_proxy
              |- pm2 - processmonitoring
                        |- My NodeJS-Application

The NodeJs Application have http and ws services. The ws-connection is for sending messages to the client in realtime. This runs all fine!

But after some time i get an error like this:

AH00326: Server ran out of threads to serve requests. Consider raising the ThreadsPerChild setting

I increase this setting but the error depents on the connected clients. I have the same behaviour like this guy here:


I increase the ThreadsPerChild but the max value is 1920 (if i am right). But the target user-connections are > 3000.

Why did Apache start a worker for each client and hold them and is there a way to solve this?

OS: Windows 2012 R2 (64 Bit)

Bye, Dumbeldore ...

Are there any other errors in the error log? Anything in the windows event log?
