    httpd keeps creating pid's


    I have httpd running on a server and every hour that it is running it creates about 12 new processes. After about 6 hours of this i have to restart httpd because of the overwealming amount of pid's that it is creating. Has anybody heard of anything like this and what I can do to stop it?
