Slow Apache Image Loadtimes
Apache Version: Apache/2.0.46
Running on : Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
Kernel : 2.4.21-20.EL
This is a very odd problem which has been ongoing for a while now. Since upgrading to this version of apache I have experienced some odd load times when apache handles images.
When requesting a page which has a number of images to be displayed the server seems to hang for around 3 seconds and then display them all at once rather than loading them gradually or straight away. These images could be 1k or 50k it makes no difference. This only happens on sites hosted on our servers running the above versions of apache. Any other sites I visit images load immediately.
The text loads straight away but there is a slight delay on the images, its very annoying.
I have been through the config with a fine toothcomb to try and discover the cause. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this may be happening ?
Thanks in advance.
