Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Usually "HostnameLookups" is set to "Off" these days, but if it isn't, that will help (unless you need hostnames in your logs, of course).
I've run into similar problems like this before. Here's what I usually find:
* If you have a bit of load, all of the Apache processes/threads you have allotted for a given vhost (or the entire machine) are full. If you have the memory, you can bump that up by changing "MaxClients" and "ServerLimit" in your httpd.conf file. I'm not a RHEL guy, so it could be renamed to apache2.conf, or there could be a default module configuration for the mpm modules on that distro. Can a Red Hat or Fedora person help with locating the correct config locations and names for danieltoner?
* Your apache processes aren't getting recycled often enough by apache. This can be changed by changing the "MaxRequestsPerChild" directive in the same location as the previously mentioned directives
I hope this helps. Hopefully a Red Hat user will be able to chime in on the specific location(s) of the directives I mentioned.
