Since he has only this server as production, and does not like re-compiling the kernel on it (and rebooting), the only option that's sensible is retuning Apache and restart services (since an upgrade to 7.X would be even more involved than a kernel rebuild). By the way, does anyone know whether there is any way to tune PMAP_SHPGPERPROC using sysctl, or does such button/knob not exist?
