Hello, Here is my latest find ~ # date Sun Nov 25 22:22:32 CET 2012 j%%%e 21389 6.6 0.0 29456 6480 ? RN Nov24 175:11 | \_ lsphptografhjo.%%%.se/templates/atomic/conf.php I could not believe when I run ps axufw! How it is possible? I use lsphp via lsapi v6, with LSAPI_MAX_REQUESTS=15000 LSAPI_CHILDREN=100 PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR=/usr/local/lsws/lsphp52/etc/php.d Instances 1. Means php is managed by lsphp but web server, yes? LSAPI_MAX_IDLE is not set. Web server have Connection Timeout (secs) 320 And it is said in Documentation LSAPI_MAX_IDLE (default value: 300 seconds) In Self Managed Mode, LSAPI_MAX_IDLE controls how long a idle child process will wait for a new request before it exits. This option help releasing system resources taken by idle processes. But the process I found is running at least a day and a half according to ps. Why it gets out of the control? How to avoid it?
