comment Server hitting high loads and becoming very slow
I might even cut the server limit down to 6... possibly bump MaxClients higher... but yeah -- glad that seems to be the right direction for you.

@srchulo I counted 215+MB of real memory used by Apache. Knock your MaxSpareServers and related options down in httpd.conf. Unless you're serving notable amounts of traffic, I bet you can get by with 3.

@srchulo Your options basically boil down to smaller memory footprint or larger server. You could run fewer Apache instances or configure MySQL for a low amount of memory usage. Other commonly installed software that will monitor IO usage includes iostat. Despite that, atop is part of most distributions, though rarely installed by default. If you've got root, I highly suggest adding it.

@MartinG perhaps you want to look into Powershell? They are a lot of good scripts around to refernce for that.

comment How to securely manage private keys for EC2-managed key pairs?
@Jeff If SSH is configured to reference LDAP and ignore authorized_keys, then the launch key will only matter for controlling instance launch and termination. That depends on how you build your image.

comment Can read/write jobs be put in a queue?
@Dave It's more that implementing a job queuing system is an intensive approach to a more easily solved problem.
