The only thing we know here is that for some reason apache is sucking
up tons of memory under a specific circumstance. This is likely due to
a bug in one of your programs that is running under apache (a php
script, for example), but could also be due to a bug in apache httpd
intself or in some third-party module you are running.

One useful tool to figure out what request is triggering the problem
is mod_log_forensic. But without more debugging, there is nothing we
can suggest.
