Fedora 19 performs poorly

Note: same message also posted in -ru list

I’m trying to migrate from Fedora 14 (2.6.35.14-97.fc14.x86_64) to
Fedora 19 (3.10.11-200.fc19.x86_64)

worker_processes 40;
events {
worker_connections 8000;
use epoll;
}
http {
proxy_headers_hash_max_size 8096; # default was: 512
proxy_headers_hash_bucket_size 128; # default was: 64
variables_hash_max_size 1024;
variables_hash_bucket_size 128;
default_type application/octet-stream;
sendfile on;
keepalive_timeout 65;
charset utf-8;
resolver 127.0.0.1; # necessary for dynamic upstream
resolution
limit_req_log_level warn;
proxy_intercept_errors on;
server {
listen 80;
location = /service_check_nginx { echo “nginx”; }
}
}

Symptoms:

  • ab -n1000000 -c1000 ‘http://localhost/service_check_nginx’ (parallel
    4x, i.e. 4000 simultaneous connections)
    says that some requests take >3sec and/or fails to complete

  • netstat -s:

    1269313 times the listen queue of a socket overflowed
    1282868 SYNs to LISTEN sockets dropped

grows with speed of 2000/sec, sometimes more

  • CPU load is not spread out evenly between workers:

meanwhile, on F14:

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND

30049 nobody 20 0 1224m 954m 17m R 37.6 0.4 519:58.73 nginx:
worker process

By the way, if I set worker_connections 800 (worker_processes 40) and
start up “ab -c1000 …” – then ab fails with an error (on F19 only;
fine on F14).

What should I do next?

Hello!

Please see detailed response in [email protected] list. It’s actually not
a good idea to cross-post.

Short version for others here: from the information provided it
looks more like a testing problem than a real problem.
