Description Joe Orton 2002-12-09 15:23:46 UTC
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 20:52:46 UTC
This is known memory leak (or several) in ap_get_client_block(), fixed in Apache
CVS HEAD.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-01-06 18:25:56 UTC
Back-ported fixes included in 2.0.40-15.
