RE: Apache memory leak?

Hi Uli,

Thanks for the reply. That's what i thought so. It's definitely high memory comsumption there.
I do not serve anything else for Apache. It's a dedicated subversion server via http and nothing else.

I have svnadmin running daily for backup. But when the backup service is not running, it's stuck in the process somehow.

Huh? That sounds really bad.

That sounds even worse!

Apropos: Do you have to reboot the machine or does it suffice to restart
Apache? The difference is important in order to make out the culprit.

That sounds like a lot, but I don't know what else you are serving with Apache

Why is svnadmin running? Who started it and why? That should be a tool for
administration and maintenance, not something that regularly runs. The only
thing it is good for regularly is to create a dumpfile from a hotcopy for
backup purposes.
