Apache downtime (was: Re: [Box-Admins] Alert: box2 runs out of disk)

The usual thing happened again: apache ran out of worker processes. The
php running mantis can consume all 200 workers somehow. I logged in today
and restarted php which resolved the problem.
Since there was no mail about the downtime - even though it was about
eight and a half hours long - I didn't bother writing a mail about this
"well known" error.
To prevent such downtimes again, I've set up a cron job which restarts the
phpmantis service every hour.

The build was started during the downtime, so that's why it failed.
This is another reason why we should migrate the source.squeak.org
image next. :)

AFAIK this box has always had such low empty disk space, because there are
local backups of the local services (IIRC 5 snapshots each about 20 GB).
