I run mod_gzip. about once a month someone will run a screwed up script that will send mod_gzip into a .wrk file building loop and in about 4 minues /tmp fills up and then apache crashes becuase it needs /tmp with mod_gzip. Is there a way to make the chkservd (when it checks /tmp) drive to automatically delete all *.wrk files in /tmp and restart apache after that? It checks every 8 minutes. If it sees it .. it does warn us via email but does nothing else. In my case /tmp will be fine for 6 months untill these /wrk files go haywire. I have a script (php) I can run right now that will crash any mod_gzip server in 10 minutes. What can be done ??.. I had my first downtime in 2 years today that was over 1 hour. I was away when it happened.
