White PaperAccelerating Apachewith Zeus TrafficManager

Improving Apache PerformanceThe Apache Web Server is the Internet‟s most popular web server software, as a result of itsmaturity, free distribution and the enormous range of community-supported modules. It isdeeply embedded into many organisations‟ internet hosting infrastructures.However,Apache has several performance limitations that can result in poor and uneven end-userservice, inefficient resource utilisation and higher hardware and administration costs.This report investigates the performance limitations in the Apache Web Server anddescribes, with detailed benchmarks, how the Zeus Traffic Manager software can overcomethese deficiencies. Key findings include:Apache‟s Keepalive Implementation gives very inconsistent levels of service when underload.Zeus Traffic Manager can manage Keepalives on Apache‟s behalf to give evenand consistent levels of service.Apache‟s performance when not using Keepalives is poor, with large error rates and lowtransaction rates.Using Zeus Traffic Manager with or without Keepalives totallyeliminates errors, and results in an increase of up to 18-times the sustainedtransaction rate.Apache‟s SSL performance is sub optimal, with slow transaction times, limited capacityand connection errors under load.Using Zeus Traffic Manager to decrypt SSL trafficprovides up to 20-times the transaction rate and 20-times faster transactions,with no connection errors.Apache performs very poorly on real-world high-latency networks. Zeus Traffic Manageralmost totally eliminates the high-latency effects, giving up to 40-times betterutilisation, and 8-times faster transaction times.Test BackgroundBroadband-Testing conducted a series of tests to investigate the performance profile of theApache server, and the effect of using Zeus Traffic Manager to accelerate transactions onthe server.The tests evaluated Apache 2.0.56 running on RedHat Enterprise Linux release 4.0 onSunfire v20Z servers with 2Gb memory and Opteron 244 processors.Tests conducted by Broadband-Testing used Spirent Avalanche test equipment and a singleprocessor v20Z server. Other tests in this report were conducted by Zeus Technology, usingapachebench or zeusbench (an apachebench equivalent), with a dual-processor v20Z server.The Zeus Traffic Manager system was a „ZXTM 7000 appliance‟ – an AMD Opteron systemrunning a standard Linux kernel.Zeus gratefully acknowledges the assistance and expertise of the Broadband-Testing teamwho oversaw and validated many of the tests in this report.A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 2 OF 18Zeus.

Key Finding 1: Uneven levels of Service under loadThe Apache server gives very uneven levels of service under load. The following test usedapachebench to load up an Apache server with varying numbers of users, each withkeepalive connections. A new user visited the site, and the transaction time and transactionrate the new user achieved was measured.New User Transaction TimeNew User Transaction Rate300250200150Apache10050Transaction Time (ms)Transactions per 0300Current UsersCurrent UsersOnce over 250 concurrency slots are occupied by site users, the service for additionalvisitors degrades very rapidly. Existing site users hog all the available resources.Zeus Traffic Manager was used to transparently manage the client keepalive connectionsand marshal them into a far smaller number of keepalive connections to the Apache server.New User Transaction TimeNew User Transaction Rate300250200ApacheZXTM 7000150100500Transaction Time (ms)Transactions per Second300250200ApacheZXTM 7000150100500020040060080010000Current Users2004006008001000Current UsersZeus Traffic Manager ensured that all site users obtained consistent performance and manymore simultaneous site visitors could be sustained.

Key Finding 2: Apache’s performance improved with ZeusTraffic ManagerDisabling keepalives on Apache results in poorer overall performance.Broadband-Testingused Spirent Avalanche clients to simulate varying numbers of users accessing the Apacheserver.Error Rate (connect and response timeouts)60025%50020%400300Apache200Error RateTransactions per secondSustained Transaction Rate (no imultaneous Users5007501000Simultaneous UsersZeus Traffic Manager was then used to manage and marshal the HTTP requests to theApache server:Error Rate (connect and response timeouts)Sustained Transaction Rate (no 0Error RateTransactions per 505007501000Simultaneous UsersSimultaneous UsersWithout keepalives, Zeus lifts the performance of the Apache server dramatically.The previous finding indicated that it is safe to enable Keepalives with Zeus Traffic Manager,but not with Apache. Nevertheless, the above test was repeated using Keepalives on bothsystems:Transaction Rate (using Keepalives)Transactions per 005001000Simultaneous UsersUsing Keepalives with Zeus Traffic Manager adds a further performance boost. Note that theApache server was the bottleneck in all these tests, running at between 90% and 100% CPUutilization.

Key Finding 3: Accelerating SSL transactions on Apache serverSSL is very processor intensive and puts a limit on the capacity of a web site or service.Broadband-Testing investigated Apache‟s SSL performance, measuring the performance ofSSL transactions by requesting 16 byte files with no SSL session reuse.The Apache server was tested directly. CPU utilization consistently reached 100% in thesetests, but the server became overloaded with more than 500 simultaneous users, processingtransactions increasingly slowly.Average Transaction Time - SSLSustained Transaction Rate - SSL12000Transaction Time (ms)SSL Transactions 00200000020040060080010000200Simultaneous Users4006008001000Simultaneous UsersThen Zeus Traffic Manager was used to transparently decrypt SSL traffic on behalf of theApache server, so that it processed unencrypted traffic only.Average Transaction Time - on Time (ms)SSL Transactions per secondSustained Transaction Rate - 00600800010005001000Simultaneous UsersSimultaneous UsersDuring the tests, many of the connections to the Apache server failed due to timeouts.When Zeus Traffic Manager was used to decrypt the connections, no failures were observed:Error RateError Rate - 08001000Simultaneous UsersA c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 5 OF 18Zeus.

Key Finding 4: Poor performance on high-latency networksThe majority of benchmarks are conducted on fast, local networks, and can concealproblems apparent to any user accessing a site over a remote, high-latency network. Thistest used „zeusbench‟ and an intermediate device1 to simulate different network conditions,and investigated the performance of Apache (with and without keepalives):ClientNetwork GatewayZeus Traffic ManagerApache ServerApache performs poorly on high-latency networks:Transactions per Second for various network latenciesTransactions per SecondNetwork Round Trip Times80000 msLocal Area NetworkApache(no KA)50 msLocal Regional NetworkApache(with KA)100 msNational Network200 msInternational Network400 msIntercontinental Network60004000200000100200300400Network Round Trip Time (ms)At high latency values, the Apache server ran at no more than 8% CPU.

Analysis: How do Keepalives affect Levels of Service?HTTP Keepalives produce a much better end-user browsing experience, but the Apache WebServer disables them by default because they cause performance problems.Why use HTTP Keepalives?The HTTP protocol sends a request using a TCP connection. HTTP Keepalives allows a webbrowser to reuse a TCP connection, sending a number of HTTP requests (for web pages,images, stylesheets and other resources) down the same connection. TCP connections taketime to set up and tear down, and without Keepalives, a new TCP connection must becreated for each resource on a web page.All modern web browsers support keepalives (and some also support pipelines withinkeepalives). The page load time and bandwidth usage benefits of Keepalives and Pipelinesare well known2,3,4,5.Analogy: A telephone conversation uses the equivalent of keepalives. It takes severalseconds to set up a call – dialling the number, waiting for the network and for the otherparty to pick up – and a second or two to close the call.Without Keepalives, you could only speak once on your phone call.The other partywould reply and then you would have to hang up. If you wanted to conduct a detailedtransaction, or even just a conversation, it would be a slow and laborious process as youwould have to hang up and redial between sentences.With Keepalives, the phone call can last as long as you need. You can speak as manytimes as you wish, and conversation (or transactions) are conducted with ease.Pipelines are a further development of keepalives, whereby the web client can issue severalrequests without having to wait for each reply in turn – just as in a phone conversation, youmay ask several questions in one sentence.Why not use Keepalives with Apache?The Apache server is not designed to handle Keepalives efficiently.The problem arisesbecause the Apache Server has a relatively low limit on the number of TCP connections(„slots‟) that it can manage at any one time.Each Keepalive connection occupies one ofthese slots for up to 15 seconds (the default timeout).A slot corresponds to a process or thread, depending on whether Apache uses its prefork(process) or worker (thread) multiprocessing module. The typical limit is 256 slots forprefork and 150 for worker, and it is generally unwise to configure a larger limit forstability reasons.All tests in this report used prefork because this is the commondefault and is the most stable and supported b5b10a-5eac485f-80f0-0e04eaf6c3ba.mspx?mfr ssues/2005/11/PumpUpPerformance/default.aspx3A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 7 OF 18Zeus. Why wait.

1. Keepalives reduce Apache performanceAn occupied slot takes up resources on the server machine, even if it is occupied by anidle Keepalive connection. In a live deployment, it is more efficient to disable Keepalivesand take the hit of accepting and closing many TCP connections rather then to acceptthe cost of maintaining the many idle keepalive connections.2. Keepalives give very uneven levels of service in ApacheIf all of the available „slots‟ are occupied by active users or idle keepalive connections,there are no free slots for additional users.A new user‟s connection will be queued in the operating system‟s listen queue, and willnot be serviced until an existing idle keepalive connection times out. During times ofhigh load, there is a lot of contention for free slots as they become available. Once thelisten queue fills, clients will receive „connection refused‟ errors, and connections in thelisten queue may time out of they are not serviced quickly.New users will get very poor service, while users with existing keepalive connections willbe able to reuse them and get good service.For this reason, Keepalives are commonly disabled by default in Apache.The ApacheSoftware Foundation has implemented an experimental „event‟ MPM in Apache 2.2 to copewith the „keep alive problem‟6; at the time of writing, this module is experimental, notavailable on Apache 2.0.x, and incompatible with other Apache features including SSLsupport.Keepalives may give Misleading BenchmarksKeepalives appear to dramatically improve the performance of an Apache server. Using theapachebench tool against an Apache Server on a two-processor SunFire v20Z server, it‟seasy to fully load up the web server:Command LineTransactions/secondCPU utilisationWith Keepalivesab –c 300 –t 10 –k7203100%Without Keepalivesab –c 300 –t 10505670%Misleading benchmarks indicate good Keepalive performanceThese benchmark figures are misleading because they only report completed connections.Once the concurrency figure exceeds the number of slots, additional requests will never beserved, so additional visitors to the site will have to wait in a queue until sufficient keepaliveconnections are closed. Apachebench does not reveal this poor “client experience”.The first benchmark test in this report is designed to identify and measure this vent.htmlA c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 8 OF 18Zeus.

Benchmarking ApacheThe default apache configuration on a RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 system was used, with a10kB response file. The default prefork MPM was used, with default d4000Existing users with Keepalive connections were simulated by one apachebench run usingvarious degrees of concurrency:ab –c num users –n 10000000 –k http://10.2.2.2/After 15 seconds, a new user attempted to download content from the new server using anew Keepalive connection:ab –c 1 –t 60 –k http://10.2.2.2/The test measured the transaction rate (transactions per second) and transaction time thatthe user achieved over a 60-second .70Time 061430New User Transaction TimeNew User Transaction Rate300250200150Apache100500Transaction Time (ms)Transactions per rent Users200300Current UsersFor more than 325 users, no requests were processed for the additional user.There was a clear degradation of performance once the MaxClients limit was exceeded.Some Keepalives were recycled because established connections are closed by the serverwhen the MaxRequestsPerChild limit is exceeded.When there was little contention forthese additional slots, the new user was able to submit some requests. This explains whyrequests were processed at the 275 and 300 user level.A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 9 OF 18Zeus. Why wait.

Benchmarking Apache with Zeus Traffic ManagerThe test was then repeated, using Zeus Traffic Manager to front-end the Apache server. Noconfiguration changes were made to the Apache Server, and the Zeus Traffic Manageraccepted Keepalive connections from the 014196.468.054.342.333.732.930.131.825.7Time 318.421.823.421.717.715.411.19.639.14Time (ms):53.449.254.245.842.846.056.564.790.1103109New User Transaction TimeNew User Transaction Rate300250200ApacheZXTM 7000150100500Transaction Time (ms)Transactions per Second300250200ApacheZXTM 70001501005000200400600Current Users800100002004006008001000Current UsersZeus Traffic Manager ensured that all site users obtained consistent performance over a verywide range of user numbers, and that many more simultaneous site visitors could besustained.The results clearly illustrate how Zeus Traffic Manager can support many more Keepaliveusers than Apache, giving better, consistent levels of service to all users.A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 10 OF 18Zeus.

Analysis: Accelerating Apache with Zeus Traffic ManagerZeus Traffic Manager functions as an application proxy, managing client side connectionsand maintaining shared server-side keepalive channels. It is capable of reducing hundredsof thousands of simultaneous client connections into a much smaller number of serverkeepalive connections.It was hypothesized that Zeus Traffic Manager could manage keepalive connections onbehalf of the Apache server to deliver better, more even performance.Broadband-Testing performed a number of tests to ascertain whether Zeus Traffic Managercould effectively accelerate Apache servers. Broadband-Testing used Spirent Avalanche loadgenerators to perform the tests, and Spirent software to collect and analyse the results.Testing Zeus Traffic Manager’s Acceleration BenefitsWithout KeepalivesThe Spirent Avalanche clients were configured to simulate various numbers of users, each ofwhom repeatedly requested the 10k file.

ZeusTraffic Manager runs a single process for each processing unit (core or processor).Eachprocess is capable of managing many thousands of connections simultaneously, switchingbetween them using the OS „epoll‟ system call.This architecture is commonly described as „select-based‟, because many implementationsuse the „select‟ system call to inspect many connections and determine which can beprocessed without blocking; „epoll‟ is a more efficient and scalable version of „select‟ wheninspecting large numbers of connections.A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 12 OF 18Zeus.

Analysis: Apache’s SSL PerformanceSSL-offload devices can dramatically improve Apache’s performanceSSL performance can be a limiting factor for many sites. Netcraft reported that some banksare shifting logins to non-SSL pages7, compromising security for performance reasons.The SSL AlternativesApache‟s SSL implementation is based on a freely available open source cryptographiclibrary.Several proprietary, commercial libraries are available which offer significantlyhigher performance; these libraries are not used in Apache for commercial and licensingreasons.Apache can be used with commercial SSL accelerator hardware, or with a specialised loadbalancer such as Zeus Traffic Manager that can decrypt traffic at a fast rate. If the secondoption is chosen, then the performance of Apache is dramatically improved to the levelachieved when processing plaintext (unencrypted) protocols.Testing Apache’s SSL PerformanceBroadband-Testing evaluated Apache‟s SSL performance, with and without Zeus TrafficManager. Two Spirent Avalanche clients simulated varying numbers of users requesting a10k file from the Apache Server, without any keepalives.

Analysis: High-latency NetworksApache performs particularly poorly on high-latency networks.The vast majority of web browsing occurs over wide-area networks where latency is high.However, the vast majority of performance testing is conducted on local networks wherelatency is low. This testing fails to identify problems that are exacerbated by high-latencynetworks.Test MethodologyThe final test in this report used an apachebench-like tool („zeusbench‟) to simulate 5000remote users accessing an Apache server, each requesting 10k files as quickly as possible.A Linux gateway running the Netem8 Network Emulation module was used to simulatedifferent network latencies.ClientNetwork GatewayZeus Traffic ManagerApache ServerThe Netem module creates a queue for a network interface, delaying packets that enter thatinterface for a configured period. For example, to configure a round trip time of 100ms onthe gateway machine, the incoming and outgoing interfaces each needed a delay of 50 ms:# tc qdisc add dev interface root netem delay 50ms limit 100000Network round trip times could be easily verified with „ping‟.Testing ApacheApache was run on a 2-processor Opteron 244 server9.It was tested with and withoutkeepalives:Transactions per SecondTransactions per Second for various network latencies80006000Apache(no KA)4000Apache(with KA)200000100200300400Network Round Trip Time (ms)8http://linux-net.osdl.org/index.php/NetemFor comparison purposes, the previous Broadband Testing tests used a single-processor equivalent,so total TSP figures were lower.9A c c e l e r a t i n g A p a c h e w i t h Z e u s Tr a f f i c M a n a g e rPAGE 14 OF 18Zeus.

Consequently, each connection occupied a process slot for a longer period.At high latency values, the Apache server ran at approximately 8% CPU. Even though 5000concurrent connections were competing for service and the Apache server had plenty ofspare capacity, the latency effects meant that Apache was unable to serve them.In limited-concurrency architectures like Apache‟s, the maximum rate at which newconnections can be accepted is limited by the following quantity:Number of connection slots / total duration of each connectionAdding more CPU capacity, memory or network bandwidth has little or no effect on thisscalability limit. The key to improving the performance design such is to reduce the durationof each connection.Improving performance with Zeus Traffic ManagerZeus Traffic Manager was used to accept connections on Apache‟s behalf and forward themto the Apache server.From the Apache server‟s perspective, the connection appears tooriginate from the local network, so latency effects are completely eliminated. As the resultsshow, Zeus Traffic Manager is much more effective at managing large numbers of very slowconnections.Transactions per SecondTransactions per Second for various network latencies80006000ZXTM 70004000Apache(no KA)2000Apache(with KA)00100200300400Network Round Trip Time (ms)10Latency is measured in terms of the round-trip time (RTT).
