Subject changing apache process name?
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2009 17:43:50 GMT


I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to configure what it shown
as the running apache process name.  I am not sure if this is technically a
mod_perl question.  The problem is that the process name is partially
truncated, so we are unable to determine exactly what perl app is running
for a given apache process.

For example, here is one running apache process as seen in top:

31122 www       16   0 76624  61m 6428 S    6  0.4   0:04.03
/opt/myapp/www/cgi-perl/sig -f /opt/c2/preview/tmp/httpd.conf 

there is more to the perl app name than 'sig', (for example, it could be or but it is truncated.

Is there any way to configure apache to show more characters in its process
