Subject [users@httpd] Apache child heap size grew to 230 MB
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 06:07:56 GMT

I have an Apache-2.0.52 installed on a Solaris 8 host.
 It is configured to be a worker MPM.  Usually Apache
child's RSS is around ~14 MB.  However sometimes it
grew to ~230 MB.  after run the command
"/usr/proc/bin/pmap pid#", it prompted that, the heap
size of the child is around 230 M.
00084000 229072K read/write/exec     [ heap ]

After that, the child never released its heap or the
memory it holds.  I suspect there is a memory leak but
not sure how to trace it.  

Could some one shed some light on it?
