I know. At the moment we added a lot of oscache-tags to our jsp-pages 
and increased the maxProcessors to 255. Untill now we didn't ran out of 
processors. 150 Processors for 300000 request/day were probably not enough.

Not exactly. I did some testing using ab, and both the HTTP/1.0 and 
HTTP/1.1 connector ran out of processors, but it was when using a 
maxProcessors of 150 and more than 150 simultaneous requests. And when 
ab finished the server was still running. So this is normal behaviour. I 
couldn't reproduce the situation where I got the "out off processors" 
message and the server allmost crashed as it did in the live situation.
