Subject [jira] Commented: (MODPYTHON-235) Memory leaks in main Apache process when doing 'restart' or 'graceful'.
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2009 02:53:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-235?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12768547#action_12768547

Michael P. Soulier commented on MODPYTHON-235:

Is anyone planning to fix this issue? It's hitting a product that I work on that performs
graceful restarts on apache regularly. 

If the solution above works, would the fix not be simple? This issue is 2 years old.

>             Project: mod_python

>          Components: core
>    Affects Versions: 3.3.1

> As raised in thread:
>   http://www.modpython.org/pipermail/mod_python/2007-June/023926.html
> it looks like mod_python exhibits memory leaks in the main Apache process when a 'restart'
or 'graceful' is done. Ie., when only child process are killed off and restarted rather than
whole Apache being stopped.
> The poster though seems to be of opinion that it only happens when certain auth modules
are loaded, which makes the behaviour somewhat odd if true. One would expect it simply to
always leak rather than being dependent on the other modules existing.
> As it stands, the whole mod_python initialisation really needs to be done over because
of issues such as MODPYTHON-195. If done it may resolve this problem.
