before the above error:

[Wed Jul 18 22:53:47 2001] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: mod_mime_magic: can't read `/home/sites/site8/web/cgi-bin/count_student.cgi'
Unrecognized character \312 at /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/ line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/ line 2964.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at count_student.cgi line 2.
Unterminated <> operator at /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/ line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/ line 2964.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at count_student.cgi line 2.

The programs are running fine most time,
around the period, my server is very busy and the load average is over 100.

I wonder if it is the cause of the server high load average or it is the result of the server high load average!

Try the following:
1. Try to use the connection object till the end of the program, avoid again and again open the connection.(or)
2. Check the connection object is destroied before open the new connection.
