    Apache childs: gracefull finishing?


    seeking advice on something I was not able to find either in Apache docs or on the web. After running for some time, Apache (1.26) seems to start accumulating G-childs, status looks like this:

    Server uptime: 23 days 14 hours 51 minutes 57 seconds
    24 requests currently being processed, 8 idle servers
    Now, of course apache restart helps, but I wondered if that's a bug in Apache or something in my config? Keepalives are set to 5 second, and those G childs keep hanging there for minutes. Requests per child is 10,000. Could it be caused by some malicious clients?

    I keep them to 50 rather than to 10000 and the server is still alive.

    Be gentle with our Apache children, they are our future.

    I've read new version's lists of fixes and did not find a word about things that could be related. This is something very basic, and they don't change core functionality much.

    Anyway, thanks, will try to reduce requests per child. I was instead thinking to make it infinite, since those G-children are, most probably, the ones which have served their limit of requests and now refuse to die for some reason. If that's the case, the problem should get worse
