Subject RE: AW: [users@httpd] Apache memory hog

Yes I'm not sure how this can happen either.  I use the init.d stop scripts, and as far as
I can see httpd does shutdown cleanly, so where this memory goes is unknown to me.  My only
fix to that so far is a reboot.

This is only true, if you dont have a real memory leak.

I must say that I am curious as to how this can come about.
How can a Linux process grab some memory from the OS, and then not give it back when it exits?
My admittedly incomplete understanding of such things, was always that when a process exits,
any resources it still owned should be freed, no ?
(unless some other process, still alive, by now would own these resources).
