Problem Environment:
eHealth 6.0 SP02 and later
Problem Ticket: PRD00029246

Causes of this problem:
Apache 2.2 was introduced in eHealth 6.0 SP02 which terminates the NutCracker based cgi executables before they can clean up their process information in the NutCracker process table. This eventually leads to a system wide hang as no new NutCracker based processes can terminate. NutCracker provides the UNIX environment for eHealth processes.

Additional Information:
Rebooting the server will allow activity to resume
