How many more that MaxClients in apache?

I am working with a client that needs to know how many client requests are being turned away by apache. They have several apache2 servers and are reaching the MaxClients number. They want to know how many requests are being queued and/or denied by apache. I can monitor their logs and see when MaxClients is being reached, but I have not yet found a way to tell how many clients aren't getting through. Anyone know how to do that?

If you have apache's log level set to debug and still aren't getting enough information, you could use wireshark or even tcpdump to monitor connections to the box. You'll have to work through the captured data, but all of the connection attempts should be there.
