Description:
------------
Apache crashes a few times per week. After this happens,
Apache is still running but is servong no further requests
until restarted.

Apache is 2.2.9, PHP 5.2.6 (nearest in the dropdown above is
5.2.5, 5.2.6 is not in the list unfortunately).


Expected result:
----------------
APC should work well, i.e. without crashes. If there is a
problem, instead of crash there should be some assresrtion
or whatever to recover from that.

Actual result:
--------------
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

3 crashes in the previous week, so I am forced to disable APC on my site untill resolved.

Your configuration is setup to use 4 segments, can you attempt to use one 400MB segment instead of 4 x 100MB segments?

Can you also verify that you're not exceeding your cache size by regularly checking the apc.php script (comes with the APC source code)?

Can you also verify which APC version you're running, I assume it's 3.0.19 correct?
 [2008-10-20 14:44 UTC] komanek at natur dot cuni dot cz
Either the APC is not using segments 2,3,4 at all or the web interface does not display them, I see only the first segments wich seems to be nearly full (but I suppose it is APC's responsibility to stay within reserved memory bounds, isn't it ? I have more than 2GB of free memory, so 400MB does not seem to be much. But the server is heavily used by various PHP apps, so the cache has to do many work.

I am using 3.0.19 - the latest stable version I found - already for some time, my does not seem to be related to the last upgrade.

I will try to use one 400MB segment instead of four smaller, hopefully my boss would not fire me at the next webserver crash.

Interrestingly the crash means the main httpd process produces a core dump, but the other processess are still in memory, although they are serving nothing more.

After running in the recently advised configuration for some time, it seems, the crashes are over. So, in my case, 4x100MB segments produces crashes, 1x400MB seems to work fine. I don't know if the source code line apc_cache.c:211 is somehow connected to multiple memory segment handling, but I hope you do.

APC Version	3.0.19
PHP Version	5.2.0-8+etch13
Debian 4.0

Discovering similar Problems.
1 Segment with 128MB.

Running only the file cache works "fine" 
Turning on the heavily used user cache Seg Faults (11) Apache when the Cache is full.

Can you try with the latest CVS of APC.  There's been a handful of changes that might have affected this.

Also, I assume that if you increase your cache size this doesn't happen, or is at least delayed?
