#275 closed defect (fixed)

Unbounded Apache Memory Use

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: sac@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords: apache


From time to time we are seeing Apache processes grow to huge size (2GB of VM) bringing osgeo1 to it's knees with swapping. It is still unclear what requests are causing this, but I *suspect* big Trac diff operations.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In an effort to avoid this occuring I have changed /usr/sysconfig/httpd to use ulimit to limit the maximum size of an httpd process to 256MB. Any process that grows larger than that will die immediately.

This has only been done on osgeo1.
