I don't know what the Apache2 Process is - but the rolling restart this morning was supposed to fix a performance problem (read Lag). And it would appear that it did!
After the restart I did all the things in the garden that usually caused me to start tearing out my (virtual) hair, clear cache and mumble obscenities. Didn't happen :) I'm sure lag hasn't been erased on the sim but it's so much improved that I might have to find a rl t-shirt that reads 1.25.6 - they are now my lucky numbers. :)
