apache process limit

Can anyone tell me where the apache process limit is set/controlled for a virtual host or for the entire server? Also are there any other aspects I need to consider setting/controlling for a high demand/traffic site to ensure the resources of the server are not limited or throttled?

Can anyone advise on the above?

Hi DoubleSpeed

I’m interested in this too. There are quite a few settings in your global httpd.conf to consider it seems eg


I’m thinking of making use of Apache mod_status to see if that will help me:

Yes and in conjunction with the server it would also be good to consider MySQL configuration as well to ensure that this isn’t limited or throttled as well, can anyone advise on this?

Would be really good to get some feedback from others on this, can anyone help?
