Description Andreas Elvers 2015-12-11 13:48:57 UTC
In case of a full scoreboard it is not possible to retrieve the server status, since the request will stall. There is no other way to retrieve the server-status on a reserved port, or via other means.

Reclassifying as an enhancement, if the server's too busy it's too busy.

Have a look at Jeff's mod_backdoor. Don't know how well it works with 2.4 but give it a try:


(look for "mod_backdoor" which will find you the source and a txt file serving as a README).
