This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

That is an ancient configuration. Did you consider upgrading to something more recent? Also, profile your code and see where the bottlenecks are - disk access? Database? Number crunching (probably not this one)? Fast processor and lots of RAM are useless if your bottleneck is elsewhere (e.g. disk access). – Piskvor Jan 6 '11 at 9:17
Was Apache by any chance doing reverse lookups on ip addresses for logging? – Misk Jan 6 '11 at 9:31

What type of application are you using ? Check if your DNS is correct, or if there is some reverse resolutions which are pending.
