Are You sure it is RT that eats Your memory? I haven't seen memory contention
on my RT box, and it is up for 56 days now.

This is a known issue with some setups of apache wit mod_perl as a dynamically

 The usual solution is to build apache with mod_perl compiled in statically. I
run a stock apache/mod_perl setup on redhat 7.2 for RT without any problems,
but this is a question of load.
