Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI receives SIGTERM
Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 20:47:01 GMT
In the apache 1.3.x on Linux that I am using, apache does send a SIGTERM
when the Timeout value has reached.  The code is here:

apache_1.3.33/src/main/alloc.c:free_proc_chain()

This is called from ap_clear_pool() which is done at the end of
request cycle, or
during hard timeouts.

The logic here also covers runaway cgi apps.

Didn't confirm if the same exists in apache 2x but I would be
surprised if this functionality was removed.
