comment Apache running as root instead of user specified in httpd.conf
What you're missing is that apache is not running at all. As mentioned by Colin, the process you're seeing is the grep command you're just executing.

comment Samba mount isn't following a symlink
Note that unix extensions and wide links are mutually incompatible. Enabling one will disable the other, so do verify your configuration. As you're using a Linux client, you almost certainly want to have wide links disabled and unix extensions enabled.

@TheDave: Unless you specifically want to benchmark the cold cache situation, you should never use it.

comment Shell command slow when using pipe, fast with intermediate file
I'll second the recommendation for strace. My guess would be that gs turns off IO buffering when outputting to a pipe instead of to a file.

comment Could high MaxClient value cause CPU load issues no matter actual server stress caused by visits?
@Saix: MaxRequestsPerChild has nothing to do with the number of concurrent requests the server is capable of handling. It just means that after a certain amount of requests, the child exists, thus it's useful as a workaround for memory leaks, application hangs and other bugs. You need to determine what is a suitable value for your environment.

comment Maximum number of users logged simultaneously into Linux
Note that MaxSessions, per the manpage, is "maximum number of open sessions permitted per network connection". AFAIK there is no builtin hard limit on the number of total sessions other than available resources (free ports, memory, whatever).
