    first of all i say the specs of the server.
    CPU: intel i7-920
    MEM: 8GB DDR3
    HDD: 2x750 GB software raid-1
    OS: Debian 6
    Plesk 10.3

    i an the server administrator and i got a mail from the plesk system about apache memory usage, going from green to red and yellow and then green.

    i did see with "apache2 -l" that it has loaded prefork and i wan't worker, but when i do "apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker" it will delete many plesk related programs.

    # apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker

    oomguarpages resource alerts

    Not sure if it's related but since the update I have been having a nightmare with our server running really slow when serving up pages. I have been told by my web host that Apache might be to blame having high usage. They pointed me at the resource alerts section of Virtuozzo as since the update to 10.3.1 I have been seeing oomguarpages Red zone errors appearing. Can you confirm if you have similar errors in your Virtuozzo panel?
