Question Apache logfiles and memory usage

Hi there,
While wondering why my apache uses so damn much memory (up to 72M per child) I noticed the quite great size of its dayly access.log at /var/log/httpd, 41M at the moment of writing. Could there be a connection between those two occurrings? That each child opens the file or something similar?
Any other ideas where that 72M per child could come from are appreciated as well

There is *no* connection. The connection is with the version of apache, the modules you run, the size of the configuration (the more virtual hosts you have ...) and the operating system. F.i. apache 1.3 on Suse 8 and 9 takes 100 MB per child, 2.2 on CentoS 5 takes 25 MB.
