Subject [users@httpd] Apache consuming lot of memory
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2007 16:27:44 GMT
Hi All,

I have running Apache 2.2.4 with PHP 5.2 and Mysql 5 on Fedora 5, my server 
has 2GB RAM and only it runs a php runtime with flash embedded that stream 
MP3 files for 300 simultaneus users...

My point is that apache is consuming about 1.80GB!!!! I feel that it's not 
correct, my  prefork MPM config is...

<IfModule mpm_prefork_module>
    StartServers            3
    MinSpareServers       5
    MaxSpareServers     10
    MaxClients             300
    MaxRequestsPerChild  10000

Other parameters are:

Timeout 30
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 1000
KeepAliveTimeout 3

Also the CPU load  is max 6% use..

I've been reading differents docs, What can I do to ensure that Apache just 
consume the necesary memory?

thanks in advance....
