The Apache module will wait indefinitely for spepd to accept its connection and cause the user agent to hang while waiting. If all Apache worker processes/threads are exhausted waiting for spepd to come up, startup will fail as ESOE will be unable to contact the SPEP.

This will cause the startup process to hang for a few minutes while ESOE times out the connection, and can cause an outage of several minutes. After the connection has timed out, ESOE sends back a failure response and users will get an error message in their browser, unlocking all the worker processes/threads.

Suggested solution is to return this error condition any time spepd is unavailable to process requests immediately.
