i thibk that you can down the variable

MaxRequestsPerChild  20000 to 2000 it's too much and if the child process
keeps the request well i't grows bigger and bigger in memory
KeepAlive is ON. i put on my server off

this too eats a huge amount of memory.

my server conf with 8gs and dual xeon processors with 300 simultaneous
connections and about 8k-12k hits/min
<IfModule worker.c>
ServerLimit          30
ThreadLimit          70
StartServers           20
MaxClients            500
MinSpareThreads        10
MaxSpareThreads        15
ThreadsPerChild        50
MaxRequestsPerChild  2000
MaxMemFree          5000
