Do you have
UpPerformance On
in httpd.conf?

That's a joke.  Performance tuning depends on many different factors. 
There is no one magic setting.  Check
for example.

But you are also completely misreading your "top" output.  You have
zero swap space in use and most of your memory is devoted to kernel
cache space, which means that you have no memory problem.  All that
kernel cache memory could be devloted to applications if necessary.

If you want to limit simultaneous connections, check for available modules, or check the
documentation on your OS firewall.
