Technically, you can just kill viewvc process ( as this is fastcgi, they
are spawned on demand ).
There is a leak ( or just a huge cache, I am not sure ) in viewvc, I
thought it was fixed with limitation of items displayed, but it seems to
be more complex.
While this would not be a proper fix, maybe we could add a limit to the
number of client served by each process ?
