Subject mod_fcgid does not appear to bound max processes
Date Sat, 23 Oct 2010 11:14:26 GMT
Hello all,

We recently switched from Fedora 11 to Fedora 13, and were quite
puzzled by the fact that our servers, despite running on all the
same hardware, were being extremely hosed.  We tracked down the
problem to continually spawning FastCGI processes: one virtualhost had
200 of dispatch.fcgi running, by our count!  No unusual messages
were found in the error log.

We did a little snooping and found that downgrading from 2.3.5 to 2.2
fixed the problem.  We think that the bug might have been caused
by this commit:

    http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=753578

A similar bug was reported here, but it's been marked FIXED
and we don't think it addresses our issue.

Please let us know if we should submit another bug report,
or provide more debugging info.
