Subject [users@httpd] ulimit settings to protect httpd
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 09:14:08 GMT

Hi, I have a server running customers cgi scripts which often go a bit mad
and spawn a lot of children, which in turn stress the server.

i've been looking at ulimit settings but i'm unsure as to what 
to set and to what value. The scripts don't often eat a lot of
cpu or memory, just bring the httpd to a grinding halt

Can anyone help out ?

Kind Regards
