    usually apache web server run under nobody user (you may check this in http.conf file), and usually number of httpd process vary from 35 to 250. Higher loaded web-server open more httpd process and this is the reason why you may see many nobody user process. Right now there not exist any problem.

    nothing special here. you may not worries about this. if you got high load, problem consist not in quantitiy of httpd process, but may be in some incorrect written scripts.
