httpd process grows rapidly to > 1GB until server runs out of swap





------- Additional Comments From glenn@apache.org  2004-02-11 03:26 -------
I have added the following to our apache start scripts to try
and limit the damage from these runaway httpd processes.

ulimit -d 262144
ulimit -v 262144

This should limit the data and swap memory used to 256MB and force
a core dump when the limit his reached.  Perhaps this will help
provide some useful backtraces to track down this problem.

I suspect the problem is in mod_include somewhere because the frequency
of the problem increased when a new site was deployed which uses a great
deal of SSI.
