Subject [users@httpd] How to limit the size of each apache child process
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2006 23:36:55 GMT
Hi list,

I am running apache 2 using prefork model, and wish to limit the size of 
each apache process.  After a request, it should check its size, and if 
exceed a certain threshold, terminate itself.  I have looked at RLimitMEM 
directive, but it says that this directive only apply to subprocess (CGI) 
launch by apache child, and not the apache child itself.  So, how can I do 
this without using mod_perl ?
