HZ environment variable?

HZ environment variable?

Post by Stefan Ke » Fri, 29 Apr 1994 23:46:48



Hi there,

I just discovered the line:

        HZ = 100

in the file /etc/default/login.
Does anyone out there know what this environment variable does?
I couldn't find any hint in the documentation.

Thanks in advance,

Stefan.

1. Why does the cgi environment not inherit environment variables?

When using apache it normally inherits the environment in which it was
started and keeps this environment for executing cgi scripts. For example:
if root has oracle environment variables such as ORACLE_SID set when
starting the server then these are normally available to cgi scripts when
they execute much like the path is. However sometimes and specifically this
time they are not. Could someone explain how this works? It seems to be
somewhat random to me. I've had situations where various instances of the
server had different paths than others.

I'm running apache 1.3.4 and apache 1.3.6 on solaris 2.7 with mod_perl 1.18
and 1.19 respectively.
