When I asked for more details, I was talking about your "my
requirement is like that" response. Worker is not really designed to
operate as a single process, so telling us WHY you have the
requirement might allow someone to suggest another way of achieving
the same thing.

And again: have you used mod_status to track what the different
processes are doing?
