There are no magic tricks here.  It would be nice if it was possible
for apache to log the process size, but I don't think that is an easy
thing to do.  So have a cron job dump a listing of processes and
memory usage to disk every minute, then you can find the exact time
and process number and correlate it back to the log file.
