The Apache Graceful Restart Patch is a patch provided by the Apache organization. The purpose of the patch is to resolve an issue that causes Apache to perform slower graceful restarts when there is a high load on the server. To read more about the patch, view the Apache bug report.

If you select a default profile, EasyApache will install the patch.
