That's not really a good programming model for apache.  Rather, you
should be using interprocess communications / shared memory /etc to
handle data.

But if you really want to, you can configure the worker mpm to behave
much like the windows mpm:

ServerLimit 1
StartServers 1
MaxClients 150
MinSpareThreads 0
MaxSpareThreads 150
ThreadsPerChild 150

A server configued in this way will always have exactly 150 threads.
There will be no adjustment to load.
