    From time to time, and without any regularity, apache ceases responding. Load average raises up to 40-50 which is extremely high and many times goes up to 100. We've also changed MaxClients up to 280 but it reaches this number even if there are not even half physical clients connected that time.

    All I can see in the logs for every child process is "child process 32431 still did not exit, sendin
    g a SIGTERM". Further analysis of logs, doesn't show any attack.

    Anyone seen this before ?

    Not sure though, your problem has the same solution but I have faced such a issue before. The server load use to creap 50-70-80 suddenly and there use to be no connections except few, not too many Mysql connections and suddenly Apache use to stop. There use to be no attack on the server. After lots of research it eventually turned out to be a HardDrive problem. Replacing the drive fixed my problem.
