Referring to another thread, "keep-alive & shedding load", how is
Thorsten able to set up Apache to allow 1000 processes?  By testing, I
have found that my Apache, 1.3.22 from a RH 7.1 RPM install, only
appears to support 255 processes.

To test, I've set the following:
MaxClients 1000
StartServers 1000

(just to test).  Both /server-status/ and "ps -C httpd |grep -c httpd"
yield only 255 processes running when Apache is restarted.

Is this an invalid test?
Is this a limit because I'm using an Intel based server?
Any other ideas?
