When your apache is started it will initially fork a number of children to handle requests (the number is determined by the StartServers configuration directive). Each one of these apache processes will be pretty much the same size and will have the mod_perl loaded, the size of a process that has actually handled a mod_perl request may increase significantly if the perl program loads some modules or has a lot of package data. These processes may then go on and handle static content. So yes initially the size of the processes is always the same but may increase depending on what they do. If you are concerned about the processes that have handled a mod_perl request growing large then you can use the  MaxRequestsPerChild configuration to limit the number of requests a process will handle before it gets reaped and possibly replaced by a new child (see also the MinSPareServers and MaxSpareServers in relation to the behaviour). Of course an Apache which has FastCGI compiled in will behave in exactly the same way except perhaps the memory usage may be different depending on the size of the module.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
