The library browser is a memory hog as it renders many problems in a single Apache worker. Gateway quizes also have similar issues.
You can reduce the memory it will use somewhat by:
- lowering MaxSpareServers (don't waste too much space on idle workers)
- lowering MaxRequestWorkers (do not allow to many to run, to avoid swapping and performance degredation)
- lowering MaxConnectionsPerChild (meant to kill workers before they get very large)
/etc/apache2/conf-enabled/webwork.conf (or wherever the real
webwork.conf is on your system)
