Application starts 6 processes


I’ve recently upgraded from ExeOutput for PHP 1.6 to the 2020 version. One thing I noticed immediately was that, when starting an application built with the 2020 version, 6 distinct processes are started and shown in the Task Manager. I see the memory usage for the combined 6 processes is quite high, too. See attached screenshot, where I have a simple application built from a single, empty, index.php page. This did not happen in the older version. Is it normal?

That’s normal. The Chromium rendering engine uses different processes. And we also use external PHP CGI processes, so that if a PHP process crashes or dies, the entire app doesn’t.
