Actually I am not sure if it is the seg faults that are choaking apache. It is wierd because the I just did a grep for Segmentation Fault of the error_logs and find seg faults every hour, however our server hasn't gone done for the last 5 hours (holding breath). Anything that would cause apache to just stop operating?
When it happens all the apache processes are still there, it is just you can't connect or pull any pages from it. So we basically have to run apachectl stop like 3 times to get it to die and finally restart. After the restart the server runs lightning fast for a good little while...
