There's not much you can do to modify that at runtime. I don't know
what the equivalent is on HPUX, but on Solaris one could watch mpstat
and look for mutex contention. I only noticed mod_ssl using these two
sets of locks:

1) the openssl ones registered with a callback at ssl_util.c:398,
   which are currently apr_lock_t/APR_INTRAPROCESS locks, which
   on UNIX will be a pthread_mutex_t.

2) the big lock around all session cache accesses called pMutex. This
   is an APR_LOCKALL which means you'd have to look in apr.h to find
   out which one you're using (but it's probably an fcntl _and_ a

If I can figure out how to use mod_ssl, I'll try to get some profiling
data out of it.
