Does it only affect Apache?

Certainly not. But my concert is Apache, and this is the only
application this server runs.

I have also compiled EXTRA_FLAGS=-DFD_SETSIZE=8192 (currently, it was
2048) and the results were just the same.

Since this is my first post to the mailling list, top post or bottom post which one is preferred?

If you have a problems with open file descriptors beccause of VirtualHosts it is my guess that you are logging separately for each vhost (both access, and error). The way I found to solve this was to put it all in one file that is then split up into the separate files using a perl script. It is called split-logfile and can be found online, I believe it was in the Apache source tree. All you need to change is instead of having seperate log files for each of them, you have one log file (which outputs the information using the vhost name as the first item on the line so that the perl script can sort it through that), thus only one FD is used to log.

LogFormat "%v %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User- Agent}i\"" cvh
CustomLog /usr/local/logs/everything.log cvh

So you can scale out to 5000 vhosts and not run into any limit problems. For errors the splitting up is a bit more tricky, but you should be able to get it done as well.

Good luck,
