Problem Summary:

During moderate web request volume we are seeing cases where Apache ceases to
service requests.  We are also seeing the memory foot print of the httpd
process continue to grow overtime.  Apache has a feature which allows worker
threads spawned by Apache to self-terminate based on the work thread count. 
This feature has been turned on.  It appears that Apache reaches a state where
it cannot re-spawn worker threads as necessary.  When this state is reached all
subsequent HTTPS requests are denied.  It should be noted that some post
requests are large i.e. 30MG.  Any insight into the cause and possible
applicable patches would be much appreciated.
