Subject [users@httpd] Slowly growing memory usage
Date Sat, 08 May 2010 13:54:17 GMT
I've been seeing these strange issue on several machines recently  where the
Apache processes are growing in size steadily over time.
If I run a pmap on them, they all have a large amount of anon shared memory
being used.

root@host [~]# pmap -d 11886 | sort -rnk2|head
mapped: 90908K    writeable/private: 69444K    shared: 592K
08125000   67012 rwx-- 0000000008125000 000:00000   [ anon ]
b747b000    7244 r-x-- 0000000000000000 000:00075 libphp5.so

This anon shared memory is common across all Apache children as I am
obviously running libphp5.
So my question is, is this mod_php doing it? Is there a way to stop this?

I asked about this on irc and other places and the only suggestion was to
set the MaxReqPerChild lower. I set this to 50 but it doesn't seem to have
done anything.  The only way it clears is if i stop apache completely.
