    When the system gets a burst of traffic, httpd processes (prefork) start spawning and are very large. How can I set ulimit on memory or some other parameter. I have maxworkers set to limit the number of processes, but at times they get large, so it's a moving target.

    Also, please note that I've set max php memory to 256, however it is rarely that size. When the burst comes, I suspect that the php process memory swells, so many httpd processes are spawned and very large.

    Looking for a sensible mitigation strategy. thx.
