Depends on your load, your resources, and other details of your
environment.  There is no one correct setting for this value.  But by
restricting to one process, you are certainly making this value more
critical, since you are removing all of httpd's flexibility to adjust
to load.

Have you read the recent commentary on this list about the advantages
of mod_disk_cache  over mod_mem_cache?
