in thread perl cgi shared hosting memory limit problem

The web host has an 'account control center' web page. From there, I can see what they call 'resource logs'. It's a table that shows every time a process (in this case, my cgi script) gets killed because of some resource violation. All the violations are of type 'memory hogs user'. For the past week, I'm averaging about 10 violations per day. I can't see data for more than the past 7 days.

    Try logging the script parameters at the start of the script and a 'goodbye' message at the very end.

    For runs that get killed you should have the first message logged but not the last; so that'll perhaps give you an insight as to what parameters are involved when you get killed.

    Of course, if this is a mod_perl or fcgi type persistent environment, it may be the accumulation of many runs that causes death; in which case you would need to monitor and log the size(s) of any globals you use.
