------- Additional Comments From ewhite@stsci.edu  2004-11-15 19:42 -------
I'm not reopening this call at this point, because I don't have enough data to
give, but wanted to log some information before it was forgotten.

I have just also experienced this bug, but not knowing what was going on at the
time, I restarted the server before doing any solid investigation, and the
server seems to be working fine now.  If it acts up again, I will be certain to
get a lsof dump and post the information here.

However, our server started getting these errors over the weekend.  About 1 in
every 1000 requests started returning a 403 Forbidden because of it, very odd
reaction there.

First of all, our setup:
Solaris 8, Apache 1.3.32, with PHP 4.3.7, mod_rewrite

Now, there were a few configuration changes I had done in the middle of the
previous week, and perhaps helped cause this to surface, they were:
A) This host serves multiple IP based websites, I converted one of them into a
Virtual host server, and added 3 virtual hosts to it.
B) I added mod_usertrack and activated it
C) I changed the logging parameters to a custom format, including the usertrack
data, and generic cookie information.

Also, perhaps related, perhaps not, is this:

The first 'too many files' error occured on 7:42pm Saturday Night.  At 4:14am
Sunday morning, the RAID system suddenly had 2 of it's 12 drives simultaneously
(or awfully close) fail.  These drives, when removed and readded to the RAID,
began working properly again without signs of damage.  It is unknown what
happened, however there is the chance that these are somehow related, or else an
awfully big coincidence.

Again, as stated, I'm now watching the server closely, and if this happens again
I will gather as much information as I can and repost here.
