> 
> We operate a fairly large Apache server (half a million hits per day)
> under Solaris 2.5 and we are experiencing hanging problems, where the
> server will occasionally block, and connections are accepted, but no
> requests are processed for 40 or 50 seconds or more.

> I think the following bug is part of the problem, but not all of it.
> 
> If a child fails to initialize and craps out, it will be reaped by the
> main process and the scoreboard will be updated to SERVER_DEAD. But
> if the fork() in make_child() fails, the scoreboard will continue
> to say SERVER_STARTING forever. Eventually, the main process will
> refuse to start new children because count_idle_servers() will count those
> SERVER_STARTING entries and will always report that there are enough
> idle servers.
