Re: Does starting an application with the "nohup" option hog memory?

I don't think that "nohup" does anything to change the memory usage of a process. I think the main difference is that the process is not attached to a controlling tty? which is pretty obscure for most things besides terminal I/O?
Anything beyond that would be a problem in the application, or the application server itself perhaps?
Here's an idea -- maybe the server is trying to do some logging to the console, and this is backlogged in bigger and bigger buffers? maybe there are some logging options to change, on the orion server itself?
