    httpd2-prefork in high utilization


    Since about the turn of the year my Apache has been going into high utilization. I have had to set up a cron job to restart Apache every 30 minutes in order to keep it responsive. I thought it was a script or cron job from one of my virtual hosts that was causing the problem, but after eliminating all of them, I still have the issue. Any of my virtual hosts seem to trigger the issue. Mainly, whenever httpd2-prefork runs, I get high utilization. Most of the child processes are closed, but a few seem to always remain open until Apache is restarted.

    I have been reviewing logs, and can't find anything that helps out. I was wondering if anyone has any troubleshooting ideas for this one.

    One thing that appears to either trigger or aggrivate the issue, is the fact that when I hit pages that refer to other pages/images that are missing, then it goes into high utilization.

    I don't know if this is the cause or not. While troubleshooting this issue, I noticed that the log file had info about LimitInternalRecurssion messages. Anyone think that is related?
