Semaphores not freed when graceful reload of apache (11.3)

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, On a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.3, when I do /etc/init.d/apache2 reload, new semaphores are created and never freed (owned by root). We have a script on that machine that is supposed to reload apache automatically when its configuration changes. The script runs every minute, and, after a while, apache stops functionning because the kernel semaphore limit has been reached. Code: rproxy02:~ # ipcs -su ------ Semaphore Status -------- used arrays = 7 allocated semaphores = 7 rproxy02:~ # /etc/init.d/apache2 reload Reload httpd2 (graceful restart)          &n (Distributions)
