Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.4.10 AH00485: scoreboard is full, not at MaxRequestWorkers
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 00:03:18 GMT
Problem: Apache server will stay up for random amount of time, usually days, but eventually
enters a hung state. When hung the CPU load gradually spikes on the machine
 and new web server requests are unresponsive.

Error logs typically contain lots of these:

    Wed Jan 28 16:06:58.667188 2015] [mpm_event:error] [pid 25336:tid 1] AH00485: scoreboard
is full, not at MaxRequestWorkers
I have done a lot of web research on this top and have found many cases where others o=have
had the same/similar issue but no real solutions. Seem very close to this bug report: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=53555
Environment:

LDOM (VM) SunOS myhostname 5.10 Generic_118833-36 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200 
8G RAM

Any thoughts/comments on http conf tuning, OS patches, apache bug fixes appreciated.

This is a production server, so you can imagine, having it go down at random times (usually
when I am asleep) is not fun!
Thanks.
