Description Igor Galić 2012-03-28 13:35:52 UTC
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#mutex claims httpd -V will print the default (optimal) Mutex for this platform, however it does not:

Server version: Apache/2.4.1 (Unix)
Server built:   Mar 27 2012 20:35:35
Server's Module Magic Number: 20120211:0
Server loaded:  APR 1.4.6, APR-UTIL 1.4.1

Comment 1 Jeff Trawick 2012-03-28 15:56:17 UTC
This is what it is referring to -- APR's default for the current platform.
(Please don't say you want it in an understandable format :) )
Did I miss your point?
Comment 2 Igor Galić 2012-03-29 22:26:29 UTC
I'd suggest we extend the documentation to say:

look for APR_USE_.*?_SERIALIZE

Anyway, those are *two* -- which is the default? The optimal thingy for this platform of mine?

>Anyway, those are *two* -- which is the default?
One is the default for cross-process mutexes while the other is the default (and in fact only implementation) for intra-process mutexes.
I doubt that this geeky stuff from -V should really be pointed to by that particular doc...
