Using WinNT with sp4.  Dell PowerEdge2300 5Gb HD, 512Mb RAM.
Apache is being used with Cold Fusion to server a high traffic commerce
site.  This site easily saturates a T1 line with traffic.  We started
using apache over Netscape Enterprise 3.5.1 for performance reasons.
I originally configed apache with MaxRequestsPerChild set to 300000.
Apache hung when it hit about 30000.  I set MaxRequestsPerChild to 0
and the apache worked fine for about a day and a half.  It never totaly
hung but most people got a 'server too busy' response.  Stop and
start the apache process and everything was fine.

I saw a bugreport about the MaxRequestsPerChild.  I only mentioned
it becuase the server hang for the MaxRequestsPerChild is exactly
the same as the hang over extended use.
set MaxRequestsPerChild to anything but 0 or Use the site under
heavy traffic with cold fusion for a while.
