I've got a very busy CERN httpd that creates alot of make_child errors
because we can't open up another process.  I've looked all over and can't
find a procedure for increasing the file descriptors so more processes can
open. I've done what I thought it would take and it didn't have the effect I
expected.  The machine has tons of extra memory, but it's not using it. 
Does anyone have a FAQ or an old message that shows what you have to change
and how to test to see the active file handles versus the total capacity.
