Description Joe Orton 2002-12-09 10:23:46 EST
Memory usage of httpd processes grows proportional to the request body size for
PUT requests.

e.g. send a PUT request with a 400mb request body and watch out for the OOM killer.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2002-12-09 15:52:46 EST
This is known memory leak (or several) in ap_get_client_block(), fixed in Apache
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-01-06 13:25:56 EST
Back-ported fixes included in 2.0.40-15.
