Adam, are you using HTTP keep-alives? If your apache box is not using
keep-alives and you're cycling a lot of http connections then you may
be running out of usable TCP sockets.
When you have your problem run: netstat -tln
If you see hundreds of sockets in the TIME_WAIT state then your
problem is what I've described above.
