Subject [users@httpd] connection is resetting
Date Thu, 25 Nov 2010 09:44:40 GMT

I'm running Apache 2.2.16 with the worker MPM on a FreeBSD 8.1 (amd64) 
machine. Apart from the standard modules, I'm using mod_fastcgi and 
mod_passenger (2.2.15).
It works well, except that from time to time, about once every two 
weeks, Apache refuses to serve requests (even server-status or 
server-info) and I get a message in the web client (Firefox) saying that 
the connection has been reset.

I notice that it happens just after the following message in the error 
log file:
[Wed Nov 24 14:11:55 2010] [error] server reached MaxClients setting, 
consider raising the MaxClients setting

This is very strange because the server isn't very loaded and I'm pretty 
sure that MaxClients isn't reached.

I'm using the following configuration:
<IfModule mpm_worker_module>
     StartServers        3
     MaxClients          200
     MinSpareThreads     25
     MaxSpareThreads     75
     ThreadsPerChild     25
     MaxRequestsPerChild 10000

Any idea what could be the problem?
