    I am battling load issues and keep coming back to a flood of entries in apache status.

    58-1 - 0/0/45 . 0.35 632 0 0.0 0.00 6.53 OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0

    I am seeing these connections all throughout apache status in noteable numbers and I am wondering what they are, and whether I should be concerned. They seem to be the majority of the apache proc's running, and I am concerned that they could be part of a problem. Regrettably, they do not provide an IP address for me to research or block, nor do they produce any visible errors in the apache error logs.

    Please help.. any information is appreciated.
