Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have KeepAlive on with 15 second timeout enabled. But processes are not ending. And it causes big number of apache processes which ends with server freeze. The only option is to hard reset server.

Why this happens? How to prevent this?
