No direct help here. Sorry.
However there is one remark.
I have used apache quite a bit and I have also coded in the guts of
Apache 10 years ago.
And I can tell this much with a lot of confidence.
Apache is top class code. I am not talking about the 2.x branch which
Or about tomcat or about php.
I am talking about Apache 1.x with mod_perl or without that.
And it is one of the best written pieces of software.
Long ago I had done some LOC counts and found that Apache roughly
matches the LOC of Linux
kernel. I could be wrong and don't hijack this thread based on that.
However to identify your problem you have to look at some low level
I think Apache won't be the culprit.
