Projects / lingerd


Lingerd is a daemon designed to take over the job of properly closing network connections from an HTTP server like Apache. This frees Apache from doing the very boring but time-consuming job of "lingering closes", and lets each Apache process go on to the next connection immediately. The end result is that Apache needs fewer processes to handle high loads, which saves memory, reduces kernel contention, and generally makes Apache more scalable.
