I need to create a Control Unit for the Apache server (v1.3.41) which will minimize the response times (server side) by altering online the MaxClients and KeepAliveTimeout Directives (will alter and do a graceful restart every time they need to be altered). The problem is that i cant find a way to extract the proper metrics such as Hits/sec Requests/sec Simultaneous Connections/sec Server Response time Per Connection etc. Anyone has any idea where to look?
