I need to set a property on the root Apache process which in inherited by its children (e.g. oom_adj, cgroup membership). However, Apache will fork itself as soon as it starts.
- Using $$ in the init.d script doesn't seem to work - nothing is affected after the init script exits.
- Using the value from the PID file is too late - only the root process is affected, after it has created workers.
Any solutions? (aside from hacky ideas like enumerating "apache2" processes)
