Apache always tries to maintain several spare or idle worker threads, which stand ready to serve incoming requests. In this way, clients do not need to wait for a new child threads to be spawned before their requests can be served.

requests. In general, Apache is very self-regulating, so most
sites do not need to adjust these directives from their default
values. Sites with limited memory may need to decrease

thrashing (spawning and terminating idle threads). More information
