Subject [PATCH] fix storage leak on persistent connection
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2001 19:14:35 GMT
The core output filter uses c->pool to store a brigade representing
response data from a request which won't be sent for a while.  The
storage for that temporary brigade is not completely freed until
c->pool is cleaned up.  This represents a storage leak which will
become a problem if a bazillion requests are issued on that
connection.

It may be that the registered cleanup for the brigade is the entire
leak.  I dunno...

With this patch we create a subpool of c->pool to use for the
temporary brigade storage.  The subpool will be cleared when we go
through the filter without saving anything in a temporary brigade.

All I'll claim regarding the patch is that it attempts to solve a real
problem and that it apparently removes a storage leak symptom when I
request a static file a bazillion times on a single connection
(no claims of neatness or minimality or anything else :) )

Comments?
