current apache connections

how to check current apache connections

Since apache will spawn a new process for each new connection you need to determine how many httpd processes are currently running

I would recommend checking the count from this command against the MaxClients setting in apache’s httpd.conf:

ps aux | grep -c httpd

To show the number of established connections using apache:

netstat -plnant | grep "httpd" | grep -ic established

Here’s something you can add to your .bashrc to make this easier:

alias connections='echo "processes: "; ps aux | grep -c httpd; echo "Established httpd connections: "; netstat -plnant | grep "httpd" | grep -ic established'
