Do you mean concurrent requests, if so the setting is:
Apache (v1.3 and v2.2) are limited to 250(ish) concurrent requests without a custom build.
Even at 250 you can (with good dynamic code) handle over 25,600 requests a minute (we've done this in production, and ~15% of those requests were dynamic and were much slower then normal). That's over 420 requests a second.
Unless you're a large site, or run long-life HTTP requests (media, some IM systems) this is not a limitation unless you have very poorly coded apps.
