If you have mod_status support compiled in your apache (either statically or using DSO) and activated in httpd.conf file with ExtendedStatus On you are probably affecting your site and server performance because every request to apache (e.g. web site hit) will generate multiple queries to gettimeofday or times function/system call depending on your Operating System.Make sure it’s turned off for the best performance:
