RT Memory usage

This RT(Request Tracker) is making life harder. The way it utilizes memory is awfull. I was reading about unix memory utilization and some thing which helped me alot to understand why apache unable to release memory.i.e

taken from: Guide

Note: there is usually no system call that can be used to return unused memory back to the operating system. when you free memory, the memory manager cannot return this memory back to the operating system. If this freed memory is never used again, it will eventually be paged out to disk - but won't be freed until the process exits. Thus, the ammount of virtual memory used by a process always increases - never decreases.

Now that's what clear my concept a bit. Now I'm looking few ways to force RT to use limited memory But I think it will make life harder for RT to operate properly. Few Apache directive I'm currenlty thinking to deploy ASAP.

It will be a great fun after tight deployment of these directives.


Currenlty working/Playing with asterisk and really enjoying it. This Telecommunication world got some charm. Thanks GOD I have done MIT (Masters In IT) due to which It wasn't hard for me to hang arround with telco world.

My major task is to deploy a module of asterisk of a simple IVR solution, offcourse in C. I'm already done with it and now looking for SIP/AIX implementation. I never thought of playing with VoIP in my life :) but thanks to my CEO, I'm in :).

This project is looking excelent to me. I haven't tried it yet but after checking Asterisk Documentation, I really starting loving Doxygen.


It really awsome :), For the last 3 weekends I'm reading its features using GDB GUIDE and it's like rocking. So many feature to screw some one, offcourse program too :). I hope I can get more time in learning these awsome tools as quickly as we dream of a new girl lol. :)
