    Hi,

    I am using the free Cloudflare CDN to help speed up my website but I have an issue with Timeout errors (which occurs when I run a single php script cronjob to import xml files. I am trying to troubleshoot and have followed your instructions here to examine the server logs:

    Tutorial - Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers

    I have attached a file which shows some of the outputs.

    In another thread you mention it could be due to Max Request Workers being too low so I increased this to 10000 (is this too high? would this high number cause this issue?).

    Is there an example of what optimal settings should look like on servers that run regular cron jobs to import xml files? What might be causing these timeout issues?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Have you checked the apache error log when the timeout occurs? You can find it at:

    Code:
    /etc/apache2/logs/error_log
    It doesn't look like you're experiencing high load or memory issues and I'd be hesitant to say you're reaching max request workers without evidence from the log confirming as much.

    Hi Lauren,

    sorry for the delay as I don't seem to receive a notification email when replies come in :)

    I have checked the last 2 pages of the error log after just running the script via the URL the timeout occurs but it didn't seem to show anything related in the error log. In fact the error log shows loads of the same IP address trying to find files on the server. Is that an internal process?

    Regarding the IP address, I have researched this and it appears they are hacking attempts so I have blocked that and a number of others in Bruteforce. I am guessing they are not responsible for timeouts?

    Hi does this mean anything:

    [Fri May 17 10:10:18.630635 2019] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 10851:tid 47024857384704] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: [client 162.158.155.160:34626] AH01075: Error disp$r dispatching request to : (polling)

    It has just appeared in the error logs

    Checking the IP address it points to Cloudflare

    Is anything noted in the php fpm logs? They're located here dependent on the PHP version you're using:



    Code:
    /opt/cpanel/ea-phpXX/root/usr/var/log/php-fpm/error.log
