Number of program instances

    What controls the number of started instances of qmail, httpd, named and other tasks? My http.conf file shows two initial instances but when I check I see 10.

    I though named would probably have an instance for each ip address but there are more instances running than that.

    Also mysql has a lot of instances running.

    I presume that the additional instances will help to serve requests but there must be a tradeoff where too many instances would compete with limited system resources and actually make things slower.

    Does anyone know how to control the number of instances for these programs?

    Wow, I thought I had deja vu. Just saw this on the WHT forums as well. Since you got your answer there, I won't repost....

    But for any other readers who may be interested:
