Thanks Joshua for your help.  Please see my

Thx again, Q.Xie

Our WebServer is a SUN box with Solaris 8.  It does
not show threads as processes.  Each Apache process is
a child.  So, should be easy to count the number of
apache children.

What I count was only the number of Apache children,
which should be the worker children not the cgi or
other processes.  So I did think the Apache parent
spawned more children over the ServerLimit.  You may
prove it by testing it on a SUN Solaris 8 box.  I am
not sure if this is a feature of Apache to handle the
high load condition or something abnormal on Apache. 
Please help!

Thx
