Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46282] apache2.2 reverse proxy causing full memory and swap
Date Sun, 14 Dec 2008 09:11:47 GMT

This looks like apache uses about 120MB of memory to store a few thousand
config directives and the corresponding compiled regular expressions, i.e. on
the order of 10K per directive (depending on how many 'a few' is). This doesn't
look optimal but is probably acceptable.

However, regardless of the used memory, your configuration will allways be dead
slow because apache has to do thousands of regexp matches for every request.
Use some more efficient configuration (e.g. with mod_rewrite and RewriteMaps)
instead. If you have problems implementing this, ask on some support mailing
