What Parameter In The HTTP Server Controls the Number of httpd.worker Processes (Doc ID 2625330.1)

Oracle HTTP Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When doing a load test in our Production environment, we defined the MaxClients=150 parameter in the httpd.conf file.  With this parameter set, we reached over 400 session in each server.

Why did the total number of httpd.worker threads exceed the MaxClients parameter during the stress test?

What parameters helps me to allow only 150 session per server?
