httpd promptly drops requests occassionally with 'Request header read timeout' error with events mpm

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We see some occasional request drops with httpd when using mod_reqtimeout with mpm_event and Keepalive on. httpd logs a AH01382: Request header read timeout error immediately and fails the request, even though the timeout has not been exceeded.
