Apache Week: The status of Apache

Author: JT Smith

Apache Week is again released. Among the items: "The main topic of discussion this week has been the design of the scoreboard in Apache 2.0. The scoreboard in Apache stores the
state of all processes in the server and allows the mod_status module to present an overview of the server status to the server
administrator. In Apache 2.0, having the MPM abstraction means that the scoreboard needs to keep track of not only processes, but
for threaded MPM's, the threads within each process as well. Paul Reder has proposed a redesign of the scoreboard to cope better
with this new model."
