Raising PMAP_SHPGPERPROC works most of the time. You can also re-tune your Apache setting to keep processes from constantly spawning and dying. For example, set the max spare and min spare servers settings higher, so Apache keeps more spare servers around instead of spawning them on demand

Hi, I have had this error once before, though it seemed to freeze/panic the machine, I think it may have been related to Apache or PHP since I was doing a 'stress test' at the time. I would guess that you can up PMAP_SHPGPERPROC in the kernel, perhaps a sysctl. Markie - Original Message
