Hello everyone:

sometimes, all httpd processes's parent process becomes 1.
Is there any person encounter this problem ever?

I guess that maybe parent process terminates for unknown reason. But, what should the child processes act under this situation?

for my server, all child processes exist and the number of them keep rising until reach the MaxClient limit. Then, access to the server webpage became so slow.

Who could give me an explanation?

Thanks in advance!
