While trying to make sense out of apache.org's configuration instructions, I was wondering why, under httpd.conf's "prefork MPM", StartServers = 8, but under "worker MPM", StartServers = 2. Similarly, under "prefork MPM", MaxClients = 256, but under "worker MPM", MaxClients = 150....and so on.
Anyone know of any reason for this?
The matter does not appear to be addressed, at www.apache.org
Why are those value not equal?
