  The server logs a message to the default log file every time it hits "max_requests".

  Look in the log file.

  If your system is hitting max_requests, you have one of a few issues:

a) your database is slow.  Fix your DB.

b) the load on the system spiked, and the server can't keep up.  Add more CPU, or have it start dropping packets.
