Subject RE: [users@httpd] [2.0.-Win32] Limit number of Apache.exe process es
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 09:22:15 GMT
Would I be right in saying MPM winnt is fixed to one child...

One child, but it also needs a control process... So that would explain you
got two processes showing.

If you need big fat modules try using them as dso.

Any other opinion ?

Subject: [users@httpd] [2.0.-Win32] Limit number of Apache.exe processes

Dear List-members,

I am running my first Apache 2.0.42 server (with Mod_Perl) on WindowsNT4SP6a
for our small Intranet. It is running just fine, however I think it is using
too much memory.

Each Apache.exe is about 20MB. That's most likely because Mod_Perl is in
use. However since the number of user is very small I think I don't need two
(2) Apache.exe processes. One (1) would me just fine for me and save me the
memory I need for some other tasks.

I've tried adding something like "StartServers 1", but then Apache won't
start. If I check the docs it says: 'on NT only 1 child'.

Can someonly give a hint how two limit the number of processes?

Futhermore if I use "apache.exe -X" will I still be able to serve say 10

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Gerard ter
