Subject Re: mod_perl DSO leaking on restart?
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2001 01:43:05 GMT
Same here.  I did a few graceful restarts and the usage jumped to 80M from 
10M...  Then I "apachectl stop" and "apachectl start" to get a clean 
restart, it works fine.

I am new to this list.  Maybe this problem has been addressed...
