Package: apache
Version: 1.3.28-4
Severity: normal

Output from top:

5375 www-data  16   0  254m 254m 3852 R  4.0 68.4   0:43.79 apache

There is a runaway apache process.  I do /etc/init.d/apache restart and
it comes back again within minutes.

I also notice dmesg giving messages like the following:
Out of Memory: Killed process 4519 (java).
Out of Memory: Killed process 5382 (apache).

I am using mod_jk

I have just replaced my server recently and now I run apache within 
user-mode-linux, I don't know if that makes any difference.

I have put the following in /etc/apache/httpd.conf:
LogLevel debug

but I don't seem to get any extra debugging output in my error.log 
files, so I'm not sure how to start diagnosing this problem further

<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.
<user> fajita: step two
<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
