comment IIS + PHP + Page with lots of images = Intermittent 403 errors
Is it definitely 403 and not 503? If 403, do you get a 403 sub code when this happens? e.g. 403.xx

"connections to MySQL (v5.0.51b) fail inexplicably." could you be more precise? What error messages, if any?

comment Monit versus Nagios
Nagios is like the Swiss Army knife of monitoring tools, it is hugely configurable and flexible. Have a look at Centreon (centreon.com) which is a real nice front end to nagios (or their own fork of nagios core).

@SimonCatlin - aye, I did that too but nothing really jumped out at me.

The other problem was that we couldn't live with it like this. The service is NSClient++ which we use in conjunction with nagios. I couldn't even get a fresh service exe to run and respond to polling requests, I think because these zombied processes were still hanging onto port 5666 which it listens on (could certainly see one of them still holding onto the port in TCPView and I couldn't close it).

Sadly too late to examine these processes in WinDbg, the infrastructure guys have rebooted the server. But handy to know for next time.

@HeatfanJohn - I thought of that too but get an error "Error accessing thread" when I do that.

There's nothing really exotic running driver-wise. It's XenServer VM so has the usual Xen drivers which we generally don't have trouble with. We also run R1 CDP Enterprise and that seems to be operating within our normal operating parameters. I added screenshot showing the Thread's tab from procexp.exe.
