apache - Apache hypertext transfer protocol server overview DESCRIPTION
apache consists of a main server daemon, loadable server modules, some additional support utilities, configuration files, and documenta- tion. FILES
The apache HTTPD server is integrated with Solaris. The following files specify the installation locations for apache: /etc/apache Contains server configuration files. A newly-installed server must be manually configured before use. Typically this involves copying httpd.conf-example to the httpd.conf file and making local configuration adjustments. /usr/apache/bin Contains the httpd executable as well as other utility programs. /usr/apache/htdocs Contains the Apache manual in HTML format. This documentation is accessible by way of a link on the server test page that gets installed upon fresh installation. /usr/apache/include Contains the Apache header files, which are needed for building various optional server extensions with apxs(8) /usr/apache/jserv Contains documention for the mod_jserv java servlet module. Documention can be read with a web browser using the url: file:/usr/apache/jserv/docs/index.html /usr/apache/libexec Contains loadable modules (DSOs) supplied with the server. Any modules which are added using apxs(8)are also copied into this directory. /usr/apache/man Contains man pages for the server, utility programs, and mod_perl. Add this directory to your MANPATH to read the Apache man pages. See NOTES. /usr/apache/perl5 Contains the modules and library files used by the mod_perl extension to Apache. /var/apache/cgi-bin Default location for the CGI scripts. This can be changed by altering the httpd.conf file and restarting the server. /var/apache/htdocs Default document root. This can be changed by altering the httpd.conf file and restarting the server. /var/apache/icons Icons used by the server. This normally shouldn't need to be changed. /var/apache/logs Contains server log files. The formats, names, and locations of the files in this directory can be altered by various configuration directives in the httpd.conf file. /var/apache/proxy Directory used to cache pages if the caching feature of mod_proxy is enabled in the httpd.conf file. The location of the cache can also be changed by changing the proxy configuration in the httpd.conf file. ATTRIBUTES

In addition to the documentation and man pages included with Solaris, more information is available at The Apache man pages are provided with the programming modules. To view the manual pages for the Apache modules with the man command, add /usr/apache/man to the MANPATH environment variable. See man(1) for more information.

pmdaapache - Apache2 web server performance metrics domain agent (PMDA) SYNOPSIS
$PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache/pmdaapache [-d domain] [-l logfile] [-U username] [-S server] [-P port] [-L location] DESCRIPTION
pmdaapache is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts performance metrics describing the state of an Apache web server. The apache PMDA exports metrics that measure the request rate, cumulative request sizes, uptime and various connection states for active clients. This information is obtained by performing a HTTP request to the server status URL, which must be enabled in the httpd.conf configuration file. ExtendedStatus on <Location /server-status> SetHandler server-status Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from localhost </Location> A brief description of the pmdaapache command line options follows: -d It is absolutely crucial that the performance metrics domain number specified here is unique and consistent. That is, domain should be different for every PMDA on the one host, and the same domain number should be used for the same PMDA on all hosts. -l Location of the log file. By default, a log file named apache.log is written in the current directory of pmcd(1) when pmdaapache is started, i.e. $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd . If the log file cannot be created or is not writable, output is written to the standard error instead. -S Query the Apache status information from the named server rather than the local host. -P Query the Apache status information from the given port rather than the default (80). -L Specify an alternative location for finding the server-status page. -U User account under which to run the agent. The default is the unprivileged "pcp" account in current versions of PCP, but in older versions the superuser account ("root") was used by default. INSTALLATION
If you want access to the names, help text and values for the apache performance metrics, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache # ./Install If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache # ./Remove pmdaapache is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed directly. The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the agent is installed or removed. FILES
$PCP_PMCDCONF_PATH command line options used to launch pmdaapache $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache/help default help text file for the apache metrics $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache/Install installation script for the pmdaapache agent $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/apache/Remove undo installation script for the pmdaapache agent $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/apache.log default log file for error messages and other information from pmdaapache PCP ENVIRONMENT
Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP. On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables. The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative configura- tion file, as described in pcp.conf(5). SEE ALSO
