Apache2::MPM - Perl API for accessing Apache MPM information



  use Apache2::MPM ();

  # check whether Apache MPM is threaded
  if (Apache2::MPM->is_threaded) { do_something() }

  # which mpm is used
  my $mpm = lc Apache2::MPM->show;

  # query mpm properties
  use Apache2::Const -compile => qw(:mpmq);
  if (Apache2::MPM->query(Apache2::Const::MPMQ_STATIC)) { ... }


Apache2::MPM provides the Perl API for accessing Apache MPM information.


Apache2::MPM provides the following functions and/or methods:


Query various attributes of the MPM

  my $query = Apache2::MPM->query($const);

obj: $class ( Apache2::MPM class ) the class name
arg1: $const ( Apache2::Const :mpmq group constant ) The MPM attribute to query.
ret: $query ( boolean ) the result of the query
since: 2.0.00
For example to test whether the mpm is static:

  use Apache2::Const -compile => qw(MPMQ_STATIC);
  if (Apache2::MPM->query(Apache2::Const::MPMQ_STATIC)) { ... }


Check whether the running Apache MPM is threaded.

  my $is_threaded = Apache2::MPM->is_threaded;

obj: $class ( Apache2::MPM class ) the class name
ret: $is_threaded ( boolean ) threaded or not
since: 2.0.00
Note that this functionality is just a shortcut for:

  use Apache2::Const -compile => qw(MPMQ_IS_THREADED);
  my $is_threaded = Apache2::MPM->query(Apache2::Const::MPMQ_IS_THREADED);


What mpm is used

  my $mpm = Apache2::MPM->show();

obj: $class ( Apache2::MPM class ) the class name
ret: $mpm ( string ) the name of the MPM. e.g., Prefork.
since: 2.0.00
