Description tommyng2009 2011-05-16 06:49:27 UTC
we and many other HTTPD fellows have suffered greatly from this leak. You can see the full detail in this link http://www.lydonchandra.com/content/hunting-memory-leak-apache-httpd-module#comment-2180

Please fix it as soon as possible as I have to hang production once in a while just to restart the server. Restarting or stopping/starting HTTPD process would not fix the problem

You'll have to provide concrete details in the bug report. 

Furthermore, If the leak requires a modified third-party module, it's not clear what kind of relief you'll find in the ASF bugzilla, so you should reproduce without it.

When following the link, we arrive on a blog where is written:

The error was coming from one of our own Apache modules

The error was coming from one of our own Apache modules, we forgot to delete win32 handles, and this accumulates over time.

So I think that this bug report should be closed definitively.
