i'm having a problem long time already and it happens only few days (not everyday) that the page take very long time to start loading with apache (i also have page running with java (JSF) that is loading very very fast, running with jboss)

I've tried to load an single TXT file, and look at the result, it took 8.60s to start loading:

I already did an ping on the server, and it's 120ms Already tried enter directly with the IP instead of hostname..

Anyone have some suggestion that may help me?

Look at the logs during the slowdowns, post up relevant parts. – NickW Apr 5 '13 at 13:36
i looked into "access.log" and "error.log" and nothing relevant was triggered... – Uilton de Oliveira Apr 5 '13 at 13:44
No requests around that time, or strange requests for things that don't exist? Does the http.log show a restart, or processes being killed? – NickW Apr 5 '13 at 13:55
no... nothing... where i can find that http.log? there is only access.log, error.log, other_vhost_access.log and ssl_access.log in /var/log/apache2 – Uilton de Oliveira Apr 5 '13 at 13:57
Go look in logs that have nothing directly to do with httpd, like messages, or secure.. can you get a ps output when the system is slow? – NickW Apr 5 '13 at 14:01
