My company has had several issues with availability and performance regarding the reverse proxy configuration. Sophos has had to adjust the MaxRequestWorkers to solve our performance issues. We have a virtual appliance and over 50GB of memory, we have plenty of resources to support additional worker processes.
My question is why are these configurations not automatically adjusted based on available resources? And how do we prevent issues from occurring in the future? As our company grows so does the load on our WAF. Sophos will not provide us with documentation to change these settings so essentially we need to call anytime an issue occurs, and getting someone on the phone who are similar with these settings can be quite the challenge.
Hi Niel and welcome to the UTM Community!
If you look at history on the command line, what relevant commands do you see? Feel free to PM me if you're uncomfortable with posting that here.
Cheers - Bob
In reply to BAlfson:
This is in regards to the reverse web proxy. The configurations are stored in the mpm.conf file which can be viewed with the following command.
In reply to Niel Zanfardino:
I see an identical file in /var/storage/chroot-reverseproxy/usr/apache/conf, Niel. Can you tell from the command line history which one they modified?
Not sure how to pull the history. Can you please provide me with the command so I can provide you with this.
That's all, Niel.
There is nothing useful in the history. This change was made my Sophos some time ago.
Do you see any lines with:
history |grep 'mpm.conf'
