Subject [WISH] shared memory based apr_pool_t
Date Sat, 05 May 2001 19:30:48 GMT

A wish to our APR hackers:

For mod_ssl and certainly also for other purposes we really need shared
memory based apr_pool_t's, i.e., pools which allocate their memory not
from the heap but from a shared memory segment. This would allow us to
complete kick out the large 100KB third-party ssl_util_table.* stuff by
using just a standard APR hash inside an APR pool which is located in a
shared memory segment. For EAPI in Apache 1.3 there was a patch against
alloc.c which provided such a functionality, although mod_ssl was never
adjusted to use this feature directly.
