Hi Eric,

That outputs kind of misleading.  Within a few hours each httpd process will consuming 300-400mb
instead of the 13-15 (I'd just restarted httpd).

And yet the usage of the server is very light, only a few users on the system, not doing a
lot of svn work either.

hundreds of megs of RES memory being used in TOP.  I just restarted it and already each is

Are those separate worker processes?  What's unhealthy about it?  You
can shrink the harmless vsz with ulimit -s 512.
