I am constantly experiencing memory outages on my server.
The server is forking and spawning new connections like crazy. I have a VPS with WHM installed.
This is the reply from my host: "The issue appears to be that your server is consistently hitting its memory resources. We've made adjustments already to the common causes such as your dns server spawning a thread for every CPU it sees on the new system, but I'd suggest you look into configuring your server a bit more to minimize memory usage. Your apache server's MaxClients setting seems to be fairly high as well, but was not able to weed through your configuration files to see where it is set."
I entered through shell and tweaked the httpd.conf file a million times changing Maxclients, MaxRequestsPerChild, and MaxKeepAliveRequests all to no avail
I am monitoring using TOP in WHM and the beancounter through putty (shell), and I see a ZILLION memory outages.
I have absolutely NO IDEA what is sucking up all this memory. I have even gone through IP banning to see if robots were sucking up memory, but either I was unable to get the correct info or this is not the issue.
