Don't know whats actually running on your server, but it is mmap and not

mmap is from an Apache module: perl-Apache-Mmap-xxxxxx

Apache Mmap provides a facility for using the mmap system call to have
the OS map a file into a process' address space.

Two interfaces are provided:
- mmap and munmap methods which provide a persistant caching mechanisim
similar to that provided by Apache::DBI for database handles.
- A set of methods which implement the TIESCALAR interface allowing a
scalar variable to be tied to a mapped region of memory. Reading or
writing to the tied scalar accesses the mapped buffer.
