stumbled over a nasty (because not so obvious)
issue with vserver ULIMIT settings ...
ulimits work well if you start/stop the virtual
server (for everything running inside the vs),
but they are not applied if you enter the server
via "vserver <name> enter" or execute commands
via (su)exec ...
possible issues arising from that:
- services started/stopped from vs-enter will
not be limitted by ulimits (set via the
- programs started by such services (like
cgi-scripts started from apache) will not
be affected by these limits either
suggestions: add the ulimit to the vserver
script enter/suexec/exec function ...
To Jacques: should be default, maybe with an
option to disable the ulimits?
