Litespeed ESI Explained
OpenliteSpeed and Litespeed Logging
Most logging is located within the following folder for system related logs.
You'll find that the logs for websites may be located under this folder, but usually located within another directory defined by the virtual host configuration.
When looking at the system logs, you'll sometimes see an error like so
[STDERR] [UID:1006] Reached max children process limit: 10, extra: 3, current: 13, busy: -1, please increase LSAPI_CHILDREN.
UID is the linux user id, so you can tell which site is producing this error.

If OLS prior to 1.7.12:
Add this into your .htaccess file:
RewriteRule .* - [E=cache-key-mod:-qs:fbclid] RewriteRule .* - [E=cache-key-mod:-qs:gclid] RewriteRule .* - [E=cache-key-mod:-qs:utm*] RewriteRule .* - [E=cache-key-mod:-qs:_ga]
If OLS 1.7.12 then add this:
CacheKeyModify -qs:fbclid CacheKeyModify -qs:gclid CacheKeyModify -qs:utm* CacheKeyModify -qs:_ga
Do not forget to restart OLS right after.
