Subject Limiting CGIs in 2.2.0
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2006 11:09:18 GMT
Hi all,

I have an httpd v2.2.0 installation that from time to time is being 
DoS'ed by a burst of hits to a perl based CGI program (mt-comment.cgi 
from Moveable Type). The CGIs take up tonnes of RAM, until openldap 
dies, causing lots of further problems.

Is there a mechanism within v2.2.0 to put resource limits onto CGI 
programs (maximum running simultaneously, longest time in seconds to 
run, that sort of thing)?
