Subject [users@httpd] Help !!! Apache HTTP process consumes high memory usage
Date Fri, 14 May 2010 05:10:41 GMT

I have build an Apache instance 2.2.15 with prefork MPM and most of the
modules as shared.  I have PHP and MYSQL installed and configured on this
machine (MYSQL client) with this every process created by Apache daemon
consumes 280M memory almost for each call.

I am running on RHEL 5 with 5 Gig of memory when load increases on server it
takes down the machine. Also I could see each library getting called thrice
makes the HTTPD daemon heavy weight.

Please advice how could I trim down the memory consumption by each process.
