Shouldn't do that.  Have you got some ridiculously long Timeout?

5 threads is very, very low.

Event MPM should help with this over Worker if there really is
a problem.  But I'd look at your timeout and threads first.
And that MaxRequestsPerChild is ridiculously low too: you
should almost certainly use 0 (unlimited) if it's just
fronting something on tomcat.
