i believe cloudlinux allow us to specify how many virtual memory and physical memory can be assign to one account.  my question is, can i set virtual memory to unlimited which i can set as 0 in the ve.cfg and physical memory to 2 or 3 GB? if this can be done.

1. what will happened if the pysical memory has been fully utilize?
2. will the unlimited virtual memory i set just now will affect actual physical memory which i install on the server?
3. is there any specific calculation that i can use to calculate the maximum concurrent connection that my server can handle.

please advise.

You can set virtual memory limit to 0, and use only physical limit.

1. When all the physical memory gets utilized for a user, same thing happens as if all the physical memory would be utilized for the system: First disk caches for that user will be purged, after that OOM would kill processes for that user -- to make sure there are some available memory
2. Virtual memory limits will not affect physical memory limits.
3. Not that I know, but it cannot be more then MaxClients set for apache server.

hi igor,

thanks for your prompt reply. btw, i would like to get some recomendation from you. if i have PHP and mysql running inside the server. can i run apache MPM worker? cause from my understanding prefork is using a lot of memory. and i scare that i will loose a lot of memory if my server have more than 1000 concurent connections.

Please advise.

You can run Apache MPM Worker, as long as you don\'t use mod_php
Apache MPM Worker is fully compatible with mod_fcgid & mod_suphp.
MySQL will not interfere with apache in anyway
