Hi, I'm using nginx+PHP 7 for running a Xenforo forum, however i'm experiencing problems with pm.max_children limit reached errors. php -v Code: PHP 7.1.11 (fpm-fcgi) (built: Oct 25 2017 10:39:04) Copyright (c) 1997-2017 The PHP Group Zend Engine v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2017 Zend Technologies with Zend OPcache v7.1.11, Copyright (c) 1999-2017, by Zend Technologies php-fpm.conf: Code: pm = dynamic pm.max_children = 384 pm.start_servers = 5 pm.min_spare_servers = 5 ;pm.process_idle_timeout = 10s; ;pm.max_requests = 500 Code: [29-Oct-2017 18:19:17] WARNING: [pool www] seems busy (you may need to increase pm.start_servers, or pm.min/max_spare_servers), spawning 32 children, there are 0 idle, and 152 total children I was wondering if is normal and a good idea to keep raising more this setting ? From what i could see based on the default values 384 workers is insane. The forum has 4000-5000 online users with 15m cookie timeout. Thank you!
