I am running SM on several machines, and am having troubles with
performance. At first SM is reasonably quick, but after some hours running
its responses get very very slow. I've been reading the list and have also
set the machines for loopback DNS with bind9, which has increased somewhat
in speed, but this decay with time still happens. Then i am interested in
apache settings for highly accessed (SQ access) machines. Has anyone got a
good variable setting? And has anyone set up apache for periodical
graceful reloads? It might be a (very ugly) solution, so crossed my mind.
My current settings for httpd.conf are:
Another question, what is best? increasing MaxSpareServers and using a
small StartServers, or increasing StartServers and using less MaxSpareServers?

I think the only reason to set MaxRequestsPerChild to anything other than a
"very high number" is if you're running Solaris. Otherwise, bump that value
up to 10k or something. Still, I don't see why that'd seriously hurt
performance - httpds starting and dying shouldn't have a large impact unless
the box is really getting hammered.
Try turning down the min/max spare server settings too. 5 and 10 or 10 and
15 (respectively) should be sufficient for most installations.
