Finer-Grained Resource Management of a Single Web Server

There are often requirements to use resource management to control behavior within a single web server. For example, a single web server can be shared between many users, each with their own cgi-bin programs.

An error in a single cgi-bin program can cause the entire web server to run slow, or in the case of a memory leak, could even bring down the web server. To prevent this from happening, per-process limits can be used.
