Subject RE: [users@httpd] Understanding Memory Usage Per Process
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2005 12:05:54 GMT

If I understand correctly:

If the memory is allocated using malloc() ie. brk() it can't be returned
to the system. It will only be placed into a free list. If it is allocated
using mmap then it can.

Don't know if that actually helps much though.
