Subject Re: general/2669: Files being served are loaded into memory then served

Synopsis: Files being served are loaded into memory then served

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc
State-Changed-When: Wed Jul 22 17:03:35 PDT 1998
State-Changed-Why:
Apache does _NOT_ load the file into memory.

If you see the process size grow with the file, then it
is probably because your system is configured to use
mmap() for sending files, and your system happens to
show the size of a mapped file as part of the process size.

That memory is _NOT_ actually used once per proxy and it
is shared between processes and automatically allocated and
freed by the OS as part of its buffer cache as necessary,
just like normal file caching.
