Subject [users@httpd] httpd still using too much memory - serious memory leak?
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2005 23:48:39 GMT
I've asked about this before and never got an answer. I used to run my 
server on a dual xeon computer and it was very memory efficient. I moved 
to the 64 bit version of of Fedora Core 4 and now it's filling up memory 
really fast.

Both servers had 4 gigs of ram. And basically the same configuration 
file using the same modules for both. It is especially bad where perl is 

Now I have to set MaxRequestsPerChild to no more than 10 to keep ram 
from filling up.  The server is rather busy serving 67 requests per second.

I really need to fix this. Sure could use some help on trying to figure 
out where the problem is.
