Number of apache2 process > MaxClients ?


I have apache2.conf using prefork with MaxClient setting to 30 ( on Lenny)

but on system I saw more than 100 apache2 processes

Isn't the MaxClients supposed to limit total apache2 processes to be 30?

Something may be wrong/security issue?

# pstree

    |         `-7*[apache2]


# prefork MPM
<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers         5
MinSpareServers      5
MaxSpareServers     10
MaxClients          30
MaxRequestsPerChild  0



Kind regards
Min Wang
