I have a copy of apache 1.26 and perl 5.004 running on an RS6000 with
AIX4.21(its a dual 166 with 256mb of ram).
My problem is that under normal load everything is peachy and works
fine, but as soon as the server gets busy Apache won't execute my PERL
CGI scripts and puts the 'Could not spawn child process' in the error
I've tried increasing a few of the usual settings a bit e.g.
This hasn't really worked, do I need to go higher? or is there another
problem? I'm getting the error once I get to about 70,000+ page requests
a day or 60+ child servers running, the server will still dish out flat
files, and will exec cgi's again if I do a graceful restart. Also, the
AIX box is not really stressed out - it's not io or cpu bound.
Any ideas/solutions much appreciated
