I’ve been using Apache::Status to neurotically peer inside my Mod_Perl project. The information it provides is useful, interesting, and more than a little baffling. Things take up much more memory than I’d expected. For instance:

if (@_) {$self->{skey} = shift;} appears to take up 428 bytes of RAM when compiled. The XML::RSS module appears to be adding 832k. Thank goodness for shared memory… Hippo is a rather fat application.
