httpd overload

    I have quite a bit of accounts on this server (400+) but 95% of them are extremely light. However, httpd seems to be having a fairly high load.

    What do you recommend me to change on the settings to make httpd run in optimal performance? I had already upped the max clients from 300 to 350 about 10 minutes ago and monitoring. Load is still around 4-5 cpu (memory is always fine).
