You haven't been very precise about exactly what is happening.  If
apache is freezing -- that is, accepting requests but not responding
at all, no matter how long you wait -- then it is unlikely that it is
I/O causing the problem.

As I said, it is highly likely that this is an issue with your php
scripts.  In the freezing case, look for some locked resource.  For
example, perhaps you have your scripts relying on an exclusive session
database, and when one of them messes up trying to access it, none of
the others can get through.

In general, given the high likelihood that this is a php problem
(which can be confirmed using the debugging technique I gave in my
last mail), you might have better luck asking on a php-specific list.
