Subject Re: [Fwd: Apache 1.2b7 process growing slowly, now 7.4MB]
Date Sun, 02 Mar 1997 18:35:18 GMT

While I have been puzzled by a problem where the server is consuming 
all of my available swap, I have not seen the following symptoms. 
It would be much easier if I could pin it down to a specific 
process, but I quickly lose the trail when the resources are placed 
in swap. I don't know if the difference in VM system on FreeBSD 
could be the reason for this difference or not, but I am currently 
in a position of having to HUP the server processes about every 12 

I've also not had any luck reproducing this on a test server.

I'll contact this guy to see if there are any similarities.
