Synopsis: Server hanging when faced with network bottlenecks

Apache will only handle MaxConnections connections at once.  Once those are all full, you
will have some connections be "established" but not served until a child process is free,
ones after that will just timeout without opening a TCP connection.

If you are having network problems, then you are probably having lots of clients with connections
that are open but not transferring data.  Think about it as if your average time to serve
each request goes from 5 seconds to 100 seconds; clearly, that will be a lot heavier load
on the server.

This isn't really an Apache issue, it is just the way that the world is.
