Did you compile apache from source or use a binary package?
List any 3rd party modules you're using, if any. Does typo use php? I forget.
Run an strace on the apache process consuming the CPU and see what it's doing at the time
of trouble.
Run lsof on the process to see if any unusual files or exorbanat amount of sockets are open
Run vmstat to check on the status/numberof waiting or queued processes and type of cpu wait
(system/user/disk)
Turn on query logging in mysql and watch the query log for an unusual amount of queries or
large data queries at the time the apache process is consuming the CPU.

Hello Nicholas,

Thanks for your kind response.
Yes, the storage engine is mysql and it is actually typo3 powered site.
But I have already done the optimization in mysql level and there is no
such load on mysql. The server is armed with 4 GB Ram and quadcore
processor. When the site becomes slow ; the top shows it is actually
apache which consumes so much CPU. Is not there any way to optimize apache ?

Thanks
