    and they are making some kind of peaks to apear and they crashes server because they uses all available memory.

    this server runs 99% Wordpress blogs and few sites with a lot of images.

    is there any solutions to solve those peaks and downtime ?

    Depending on your servers hardware, you can optimize the Apache configuration and also install some caching software. Additionally Wordpress has some of it's own caching tools like WP Super Cache you can install to speed up page loading.

    Running everything under nobody is a security risk. You're best off to use Suphp where PHP processes are run under each user.

    as i found suphp is installed and apache cache is installed too but after installation of Apache cache httpd (2.2.14 (Unix)) failed and i'w waiting for server techs to fix this.

    i have even added wp super cache to all blogs that are getting more them few hundred visitors per day, but that don't help there are still allot of nobody processes that uses all memory and server crashes.

    so i don't know what's wrong there, is it server configuration mistake or something wrong with my websites.

    It's possible they are fake HTTPD processes and actually perl bot scripts running. You can grab a copy of Nobody Check - Nobody Check Security Tool - Projects (use to be my process checking software but should still do the trick).

    You can also run this in shell
    ls -lah /proc/processIDhere
    cat /proc/processIDhere/environ

    Replace processIDhere with some of the process numbers of those Nobody Apache processes.

    About making optimization to apache, mysql, Keep in mind that this depends on your hardware. It differs from a server to other.
