I think the word on this is currently still out but I believe it is what happens when something asks apache about it's environment.

I've started to see it in our logs and am still researching it.

I tried a rebuild of apache and it persists.

It's Apache polling its child processes to verify they're responding correctly.

31-2 - 0/0/44 . 0.00 41 0 0.0 0.00 0.92 ::1 mxx1.xx.com OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0

The second field, " - ", shows that this isn't an active connection.. It's the last connection that took place for this particular thread/process. Since Apache polls its children every few minutes it's not unusual to see many of these on a system with light web traffic.

With some versions of Apache you'd see a "GET /" instead of "OPTIONS *" for these connections.
