Description:
------------
After few hours, when the cache is full, httpd (apache 2.0.59) returns exit signal Segmentation fault (11) and freeze. I have to restart httpd

If I set APC Off --> no pbm

So I have tried with a higher value for apc.shm_size (512 rather than 128)

One again few mn after the cache is full I have an error in httpd and all requests http freeze

This time the error is
[Fri May 18 23:12:35 2007] [apc-error] apc_fcntl_lock failed: Resource deadlock avoided
[Fri May 18 23:12:35 2007] [apc-error] apc_fcntl_lock failed: Resource deadlock avoided

Hi

Thanks, but I'm surely idiot...

So, what is the solution ????

Turn off all TTL ?

In this case what about the files cache on disk ? 
Do I have to delete them manualy ?

Thanks a ton

Ok, maybe I found something

In fact on my box the shm is set at 16M by default in /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

As the APC config example set thre shm to 128 I had let it like this. 

I have changed /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax to set it to 128M

Now I don't have any more Segmentation fault in apache

But I have a High number of "Cache full count".

2314 in 17mn !!!

Normal ???

Here is my new setting :

If your cache full count is that high it simply means that you are trying to cache way more scripts than you have room for.  You need to either increase your shm segment even more, or you need to add apc.filter rules to reduce the amount of code you put in the cache.  Having the cache constantly fill up like that is going to slow things down.

I've changed this to a feature request for APC to do a better job detecting system-level settings like /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax that might interfere.
