But the only way to make the most of your server management is to perform it correctly. And to help you do so, this article will share nine tips on improving your server management and fix some problem about apache-2.2, , , , .

I installed and configured Apache Mobile Filter module for Apache to redirect users to mobile version of our website, depending on their user agents. I configured the module to use WURFL.

But as soon as I start Apache it hogs a large amount of memory (without any in-coming web requests):

Resident Memory: 300 to 400 MB
Virtual Memory: 300 to 650 MB

Without this module, Apache was consuming much lesser memory (4 to 10 MB).

What could be the reason here?

Solution :

Hi I am the owner of AMF, AMF stored the Device Repository in memory with several index this is the reason AMF is very fast.

But I don’t know why it’s take in your webserver so much memory, on my apachemobilefilter.org webserver with two repositories (WURFL and 51Degrees) take only 230mb, my virtual server has only 256mb memory.
